Moving Carbon Action and Accounting Upstream

Presented by

Ali Fenn, President ITRenew | Lars Schedin, Co-Founder and Senior Advisor EcoDataCenter

About this talk

Despite renewable energy progress, the data center industry’s carbon footprint keeps growing. We won’t “offset” our way out of this crisis. To reverse decades of damage, we need to take the fight to largest sources of CO2 and eWaste in IT and widen the lens through which decarbonization and sustainability are measured. Join ITRenew, who’s circular, sustainable infrastructure approach is eliminating the 75% of pre-use carbon tied to IT globally. And EcoDataCenter, the Swedish pioneers behind the world’s first climate positive data center. They’ll discuss new solutions turning once-aspirational targets into industry standards for companies like Green AI Cloud (how about net CO2 savings of 100+ grams of carbon/kWh?). This is the next step in carbon modeling: a holistic scope 1, 2, 3 approach that comprehends both hardware and the environment in which it exists. Marrying traditional metrics with building materials, power supplies, and how technology is designed, sourced and implemented.
