Global Member Summit – iMasons “Leading the Charge” on Climate Change
iMasons hosted our interactive on-line Global Member Summit – EMEA on May 28th. As a follow on to the Americas Global Member Summit and APAC Global Member Summit, attendees participated in the continued development of a plan to neutralize the environmental impact of inevitable growth.
To accommodate and gather input from the growing number of iMasons members around the world, 3 Global Member Summits were facilitated. The Americas Global Member Summit was held on April 22, 2020, followed by the APAC Summit on May 21st. The Final Summit, for our EMEA members, was held on May 28th. (All iM Members were welcome to attend each / all).
During this online and highly interactive meeting, iMasons shared the Sustainability Strategy developed by iM Hyperscale End Users in March 2020 and leveraged the collective brain power of the iM Digital Infrastructure Community to tackle our most complex challenge yet – a plan to neutralize the environmental impact of inevitable growth.
This series of virtual Summits served as the “Lift Off” to a sustainable digital future. Between us, we can make the digital infrastructure industry carbon neutral by 2030 and you can help develop the industry Action Plan that will be shared during the UN Sustainability Summit in September 2020.

In typical iMasons fashion, the event included a mix of stellar speakers and opportunities for attendees to contribute their experience and perspective – without any sales pitches.
