Stepping up the fight against climate change

September 24, 2020 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


In 2018, we set an ambitious goal of achieving a 75 percent absolute reduction in operational greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and to support our global operations with 100 percent renewable energy by the end of 2020. On both counts, we are well on track: These commitments have spurred the construction of over 5,400 megawatts (MW) of new solar and wind power capacity around the world, and reduced our emissions by more than 2.6 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) over the past three years. Now that we are near completion of our initial goals, we are looking ahead and ramping up our efforts to fight climate change for another decade. We have committed to reaching net zero emissions for our value chain in 2030, with renewable energy, hyperefficient operations, supplier engagement, and carbon removal solutions as the cornerstones of this effort.
