Micron Commits to 2050 Goals

Micron Technology, Inc. announced new targets to reduce GHG emissions as part of the company’s overall sustainability strategy outlined in its annual sustainability report. 

The new commitments put the company on a path to achieve net zero emissions from its global operations (Scope 1) and purchased energy use (Scope 2) by 2050.

Micron has set new shorter-term, time-bound targets. By 2030, Micron aims to reduce scope 1 GHG emissions across its own operations by 42% against its 2020 baseline. 

The company also focuses on procuring renewable energy globally to support its net zero objective and continues to target 100% renewable energy in the U.S. by the end of 2025. Micron recently announced progress toward these goals, achieving 100% renewable energy in Malaysia and partnering with Idaho Power to advance solar-powered renewable energy in Idaho.

“We know the well-being of our communities and team members, as well as the strength of our business, depends on the actions and investments we make to address our environmental footprint. That’s why sustainability is embedded across the entire spectrum of Micron’s business, from our operations and manufacturing sites across 17 countries, to our finance strategy, product development and supply chain management,” said Manish Bhatia, executive vice president of Global Operations at Micron, in a statement. “As a technology leader, we established these new greenhouse reduction targets to reinforce our commitments and further advance our environmental strategy.”

Micron’s multifaceted approach includes investing in advanced abatement systems, prioritizing use of gasses with lower global warming potential, sourcing energy-efficient equipment, and purchasing renewable instead of fossil fuel-generated energy.
