Infrastructure Masons named Ali Fenn, President of ITRenew, as the first winner of the 2021 iMasons Sustainability Champion Award at the virtual ceremony on December 15th, 2021.
ITRenew is creating a circular economy for IT equipment on a global scale, eliminating 75% of pre-use phase carbon tied to IT. Working with the world’s largest hyperscale cloud service providers and others, ITRenew is transforming the way their data center infrastructure is deployed and managed and the impact it has on the climate.
Ali also oversees all ESG functions and initiatives at ITRenew, including championing D&I and was instrumental in ITRenew achieving carbon neutrality in 2021!
“I want to thank ITRenew for the incredible platform the team built to enable us to truly catalyse transformation of the industry in a positive way towards a more sustainable future.” Said Fenn. “We’re living in unprecedented times right now with accelerated demand for technology and infrastructure in a way that we’ve never seen before; driven by smart remote everything, autonomous everything and, at the same time, we’re going towards a climate crisis, a supply chain crisis and we have 40% of the world that is still not connected. Now is the time to really take action and to change as we continue to drive business model innovation and technological innovation that is going to be essential to all of us as we catalyse and harness the immense positive potential of technology without trashing the planet in the process”
