Few issues are more universally pressing than climate change. The resulting increase in global temperatures, warming oceans, shrinking ice caps, rising sea levels, and extreme weather events severely disrupts people’s health, safety, well-being and livelihoods. As natural disasters grow in frequency and intensity worldwide, they have the potential to not only destroy people’s lives, but to spur the upheaval of communities, businesses and entire industries.
HPE will be the first company to enable suppliers to set science-based GHG reduction targets in their own operations. Launched in May, the program will enable 80% of manufacturing suppliers, by spend, to reduce their own emissions in line with the targets that climate science says is necessary to prevent dangerous global warming. This effort seeks to avoid 100 million tons of emissions by 2025, equivalent to taking 21 million passenger vehicles off the road for one year.
PURCHASE, N.Y., May 18, 2017 / 3BL Media / -- PepsiCo has confirmed that its ambitious new target for greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction has been verified and approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative as being in line with what climate science says is necessary to keep global warming below two degrees Celsius. The global food and beverage company has committed to work to reduce absolute GHG emissions across its value chain by at least 20 percent by 2030.
SCA will substantially raise the bar for climate work by committing to develop a science-based target for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The proposed target will be developed over the course of the year and submitted to approval organizations.
