NCR Commits to 2050 Goals
NCR Corporation, an enterprise technology provider, committed to net zero GHG emissions by 2050.
“Last year, NCR committed to becoming an ESG leader among our peer technology companies. We have been working hard to improve key areas that our employees, customers, investors and suppliers care about most,” said Michael D. Hayford, Chief Executive Officer, NCR in a statement. “We are sharing multiple ESG reports and commitments for the first time to really stand behind what we said we were going to do and will continue to be transparent as we work to achieve our goals.”
The path to net zero GHG emissions by 2050 includes transitioning the NCR fleet to electric vehicles.
The company developed a comprehensive GHG inventory management plan that focuses on Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions from its global facility and service operations. It’s based on the GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard developed by the World Resources Institute and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development.
