At Core Scientific, we operate with the highest integrity, cultivate a culture of compliance, and seek out opportunities that help benefit our customers, employees and the communities in which we live and work. To that end, we are focused on two immediate priorities: Minimizing our ecological footprint and maximizing the positive economic impact we have on our communities.
100% Net Carbon-Neutral
As the largest digital asset mining operation in North America, we take pride in being 100% net carbon-neutral and ensuring that the power mix that energizes our fleet is based on as much carbon-free power as possible. To date, 54% of our electricity comes from carbon-free sources, including solar, wind, hydro, nuclear and others. As we continue to scale, we are committed to maximizing our mix of carbon-neutral and renewable energy sources, while remaining cost competitive.
We believe that the steady load that digital asset mining provides power suppliers will help to serve as a catalyst that significantly accelerates the adoption of renewable energies, and we remain committed to doing our part in building a net zero digital asset mining industry.
At Core Scientific, we are committed to making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and operate. We are a large and growing career creator in economic opportunity zones, helping to turn "rust belt" regions into the digital asset backbone of the United States. To that end, we have repurposed underutilized manufacturing facilities and turned them into digital asset mining powerhouses.
The benefits to engaging in this redevelopment are many. First, we have been able to create skilled, high paying jobs in the communities in which we operate. Second, we have invested in our people, ensuring they have a career path that is clear and meaningful. Third, by seeking out existing facilities, we have been able to save time, money, and have avoided the impact on the environment associated with building from scratch.
As a company we are committed to building a thriving, environmentally friendly blockchain infrastructure that positively impacts the communities in which we operate and positions the United States as a premier destination for digital mining operations.
