SMART Global Updates Emission Reduction Progress
SMART Global Holdings, Inc. announced its latest commitment to reach net zero Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon emissions by 2030.
This marks the next step in a sustainability journey that began with last year’s commitment to leverage renewable sources for 75% of its global energy. Next year SGH will begin the process of validating its carbon targets through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
Details were released in the SGH 2021 ESG Report, the second annual record of SGH’s progress toward its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals.
“Last year, we focused on investing in the resources and governance initiatives necessary to achieve substantive ESG goals over the long term, while also delivering short-term results,” said Mark Adams, president and CEO of SGH, in a statement. “This year, we are making additional strides, starting with our goal to achieve net zero Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon emissions by 2030. Internally, we are fostering an equitable workplace that provides opportunities for a diverse workforce, beginning with a gender pay parity analysis that not only evaluates our current practices, but also allows us to track data year-over-year. 2021 was meaningful for ESG at SGH, but it was just the beginning.”
