Emerson Sets 2045 Goals
Emerson, a technology and software solutions company, announced its sustainability strategy to achieve net zero GHG Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions by 2045.
By 2030, Emerson plans to reach net zero across its own operations for Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions and drive a 25% reduction in its Scope 3 value chain emissions compared to a 2021 baseline.
The company detailed these goals in its 2021 ESG report.
Emerson has aligned its sustainability approach to the Net-Zero Standard set by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi), the leading organization driving science-based target adoption.
These 2030 near-term targets have been approved by SBTi as consistent with the 1.5°C trajectory required to meet the goals of the Paris agreement. Emerson has also committed to validating its long-term 2045 net zero target, in line with the SBTi’s Net-Zero Standard.
“We help enable the low-carbon transition of some of the largest companies and most critical industries around the world,” said Lal Karsanbhai, Emerson’s president and CEO in a statement. “Our net zero goal is a vital step forward as we evolve our business and contribute to a more sustainable world.”
