As a global company, we’re making significant progress to be net-zero by 2025 by committing to power our offices with 100% renewable electricity by 2023; engaging key suppliers to reduce their emissions; and being thoughtful about how we travel.
To achieve net-zero emissions by 2025, we’ll focus first on actual reductions across our scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. To address the remaining emissions, we will invest in nature-based carbon removal solutions that directly remove carbon emissions from the atmosphere.
The projects we are putting in place will reforest land with native species, rebuild biodiversity, make agriculture more sustainable and help create green jobs, all while removing carbon—and all in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a particular focus on SDG 13: Climate Action.
At Global Citizen Live, we shared how we’re investing in nature-based carbon removal solutions to remove CO2 from the atmosphere. Watch the video to learn more.
