Global power leader Cummins Inc. has been accepted into the U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Climate Challenge, one of 35 members pledging to reduce their scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 50% within 10 years.
Scope 1 emissions include direct emissions owned or controlled by an entity. Scope 2 covers indirect emissions from the generation of purchased electricity, steam, heating and cooling.
Validation Confirms Soundness of LG’s Strategy to Use Science-based Targets to Achieve Goals Set by Paris Agreement
SEOUL, South Korea, Nov. 2, 2021 /3BL Media/ — LG Electronics’ strategy for cutting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from production to use by 2030 has been independently reviewed and validated by climate expert SBTi. This Science Based Targets Initiative validation confirms LG’s confidence in its strategy to reduce the total amount of direct GHG emissions in line with Business Ambition for 1.5°C, which LG committed to earlier this year.
onsemi has committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2040 and we are implementing an aggressive strategy to reach this goal. But what does net zero mean? How does this compare to what our competitors and other companies are doing around climate change?
The urgency to act on climate change has never been greater, and, in the absence of global regulation, companies are voluntarily stepping up to fill the gap. As of the publication of this blog post, more than 1000 companies have set public science-based carbon reduction targets through the Science-based Targets Initiative (SBTI), while hundreds more have committed to renewable energy, energy efficiency, and electric vehicle adoption through The Climate Group’s RE100, EP100, and EV100 programs.
From conducting onsite assessments of nearly 100 global facilities over the past few years and providing desktop and virtual technical advice to many more, we have learned a lot about how to effectively support clients with saving money and reducing their impacts on local communities and natural resources. It doesn’t matter what sector you are in because optimization opportunities are very similar across industries.
Climate change is predicted to increasingly pose a risk to our planet and to our business. Extreme weather events and heat will make it harder for our key agricultural commodities to grow, increase the difficulty of getting our finished goods to market, and create difficulties in our consumers’ abilities to get to stores and even our own employees’ ability to get to work (think of shopping or commuting during a blizzard or hurricane or even how the present-day COVID-19 pandemic has changed our world).
While Mohawk businesses operate in a decentralized manner, all are sharing best practices to reduce our collective use of natural resources. Across Mohawk, we are approaching the final year of work toward our 2020 goals, set in 2010, to decrease energy, GHG, water and waste-to-landfill intensity by 25%.
In this video series, we’re sharing more about the intent of Mosaic’s 2025 sustainability targets and how we’ll get there. Acting Responsibly is a strategic priority for our employees and our company. This critical work helps Mosaic to maximize our positive impact on society.
This week, hear from Director of Regulatory Affairs Jessica Theriault and EHS Manager Leonardo Bissacot as they talk about one of our environment targets: Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20% per tonne of product by 2025.
