Hut 8 Announces ESG Goals to Drive a More Sustainable Future

The leading digital asset miner unveils a series of holistic targets around environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues, from carbon removal to corporate diversity.

TORONTODec. 8, 2021 /CNW/ – Hut 8 Mining Corp. (Nasdaq: HUT) (TSX: HUT) (“Hut 8” or “the Company”), is pleased to announce its Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) objectives as a part of its efforts to lead the global industry in innovation, inclusivity and sustainability.

“Technology, sustainability, inclusivity and innovation are part of our DNA at Hut 8, and we are proud to lead positive change in our sector, which we hope will build a legacy that our team and shareholders can be proud of,” said Jaime Leverton, Chief Executive Officer of Hut 8.

While the Company is sharing its objectives and goals today, ESG is not a new focus for Hut 8 and has been one of its key priorities under Leverton’s leadership. The primary objectives are centered around a suite of goals that extend to all aspects of corporate social responsibility, including:

  • Achieving carbon neutrality for scope 1 & 2 GHG emissions by 2025;
  • Reducing emissions through technological and operational innovation;
  • Fostering workplace health and safety, and maintaining zero total recordable incidents;
  • Focusing on corporate diversity across employee representation including the goal to achieve 25% employee representation from women;
  • Maintaining executive management team gender diversity of over 40% women;
  • Maintaining board gender diversity representation of over 30% women;
  • Continuing to be compliant with public company reporting and disclosure requirements; and,
  • Supporting and partnering with non-profit and charitable organizations that drive positive social impact and climate change efforts.

Hut 8’s approach to ESG will continually adapt based on new data and insights, which are consistent and in line with our near and long-term business strategy. Our Company’s long-term strategy will include actions focused on renewable energy and continued collaboration with suppliers to further reduce emissions.

In taking a proactive role in driving progress for the digital asset industry, Hut 8 became a founding member of the Bitcoin Mining Council in 2021. The Bitcoin Mining Council is a voluntary group of digital asset miners that promotes energy usage transparency and encourages the use of renewable energy sources. Additionally, Hut 8 joined the Crypto Climate Accord, which is the result of a collaborative effort inspired by the Paris Climate Agreement. As part of Hut 8’s ESG goals, the Company will be referencing its disclosures against the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and intends to progressively enhance these disclosures over time.

Hut 8 Mining Provides Production Update for November 2021

TORONTODec. 2, 2021 /CNW/ – Hut 8 Mining Corp. (Nasdaq: HUT) (TSX: HUT) (“Hut 8” or “the Company”), one of North America’s largest, innovation-focused digital asset mining pioneers, supporting open and decentralized systems since 2018, is pleased to provide the following corporate update.  All dollar figures are in Canadian Dollars unless otherwise stated.

Mining Production Highlights for November 2021:

  • 265 Bitcoin were mined, resulting in an average production rate of 8.83 Bitcoin per day.
  • 100% of the self-mined Bitcoin for the month of November were deposited into custody, consistent with Hut 8’s Hodl strategy.
  • Total Bitcoin balance held in reserve is 5,242 as of November 30, 2021.

Mining Equipment Deployment Update for November 2021:

During November 2021, the Company completed the deployment of high-performance NVIDIA chips at Hut 8’s site in Medicine Hat, Alberta. The Company has deployed the NVIDIA CMPs to mine the Ethereum network via Luxor pool, and consistent with its Hodl strategy, is receiving payouts in Bitcoin. Based on current mining economics this equates to approximately 1.8 – 2.0 additional Bitcoin per day. Hut 8 currently has an installed hashrate of approximately 1.7 EH/s, which includes the converted hashrate from its fleet of CMPs.

“Our NVIDIA CMP deployment is contributing revenue of approximately $140,000 per day, based upon current mining economics,” said Jason Zaluski, Head of Technology for Hut 8. “Given the low power intensity of these chips, our cost per Bitcoin of approximately $3,000 means we are achieving unit margins in excess of 95%.”

About Hut 8:

Hut 8 is one of North America’s largest innovation-focused digital asset miners, supporting open and decentralized systems since 2018. Located in energy rich Alberta and North Bay, Ontario, Canada, Hut 8 has one of the highest installed capacity rates in the industry and holds more self-mined Bitcoin than any crypto miner or publicly traded company globally.
