IBM announced plans to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 to address the global climate crisis and advance its decades-long work.
IBM is committed to eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from its operations that warm the planet by 2030. The company announced concrete short-term steps they will take to be successful in this nearly ten-year period.
Renewable resources will be the most important energy source
To reach the net zero goal, IBM:
Compared to 2010, it will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 65% by 2025.
It will supply 75% of the electricity it consumes worldwide from renewable sources by 2025 and 90% by 2030.
IBM will now use applicable technologies such as carbon capture by 2030 to eliminate emissions equal to or exceeding the emission level.
“I am proud that IBM is leading by taking measures to significantly reduce emissions. The climate crisis is one of the most pressing issues of our time. IBM’s net zero commitment is what strengthens our longstanding climate leadership and makes our company Paris Climate” It is a bold step forward that places it years ahead of the targets set in the Agreement. ” gave his statements.
As part of IBM’s commitment to sustainability and its focus on the application of science and technology to solve major societal challenges, in the last days of January IBM Research launched a Future of Climate initiative designed to accelerate the discovery of solutions to the impacts of changing climate.
