At the iMason’s Summit (October 2019) end users (representing +$100 billion of digital infrastructure spend) predicted 39x growth in the next 10 years, while suppliers predicted 10x growth.
With the growth in digital infrastructure set to continue to accelerate well into the future, sustainable growth is the ultimate imperative and industry leaders are extremely motivated to come together, leaving companies at the door, to determine an Action Plan for a Sustainable Digital Future.
In response, iMasons and DCD will be holding a series of global workshops at various DCD events in 2020, bringing together iMasons members and experts from across the data center and digital infrastructure industry community to develop an industry Action Plan for a Sustainable Digital Future.
The plan will be shared during the UN 75th Anniversary Global Sustainability Summit in New York in September and will showcase the learnings from the series of interactive workshops being held internationally.
