This includes the promotion of sustainable economic growth through a new industry, resulting in local employment and community involvement.

To further their sustainability efforts, Start Campus has joined the iMasons Climate Accord (ICA), signing an industry-wide pledge to reduce climate change by reducing data center carbon output, with the goal to be carbon-free operations by 2025 and fully carbon-free by 2028. The carbon-free goal is achieved through the repurposing of existing energy grid facilities, utilizing ocean water for a state-of-the-art cooling solution avoiding drinkable water consumption, as well as its own solar parks, backed by batteries and green PPAs, to optimize costs. These facilities create their own energy, protect the environment, and is not a strain on the community’s energy grid.
