IBM achieves major climate protection goals four years early

 

IBM has announced that it achieved two major commitments four years ahead of schedule in its effort to help combat climate change.


“IBM has been one of industry's earliest and unambiguous leaders regarding climate change, having publicly launched our first specific CO2 emissions reduction goal in 2000 and having published a formal position in 2007. The achievements we're announcing today are a testament to our longstanding commitment to protecting our planet by delivering action and results," said Wayne Balta, IBM Vice President of Corporate Environmental Affairs and Product Safety.  “We know that businesses must play a leadership role in the fight against climate change, and we continue to lead by reducing our own operational impact and by developing innovative solutions to help our clients do the same."

The goals that were accomplished included 1) the reduction of CO2 emissions associated with IBM’s energy consumption by 35% by year-end 2020 against base year 2005 and 2) the procurement of electricity from renewable sources for 20% of IBM’s annual electricity consumption by 2020.
