We welcome atNorth to our members base at a crucial time and look forward to collaborating with the team to help our industry reduce carbon and work towards a sustainable future.” 

Gisli Kr., atNorth’s CCO, recently received an IM100 Award from the iMasons. The winners were recognized for contributing to the digital infrastructure in meaningful, impactful and measurable ways. I am honored to win this award and to be recognized for the work we are doing at atNorth,” commented Gisli Kr.

We are starting to see a positive shift in mindset across our industry and by partnering with the iMasons, we can continue to drive sustainability up the IT agenda.”
