Ericsson said in statement today that in 2021 it set a long-term ambition to be Net Zero by 2040 across its value chain. To meet this ambition, Ericsson will work towards 1.5°C aligned climate targets set by the Paris Agreement.
It added that the first major milestone is to achieve Net Zero emissions from the company’s own activities by 2030 – as well as reducing emissions by 50 percent in its portfolio and supply chain also by 2030.
Commenting on this Ericsson’s Head of Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility, Heather Johnson is quoted as saying that “Our sustainability-driven solutions and partnerships create real impact for our customers and our stakeholders.” “But they also create value for society, whether by enabling the reduction of emissions across industries, creating more energy-efficient networks or helping to bridge the digital divide. We made significant progress towards our sustainability goals in 2021, and we are now setting even more ambitious targets for the future.”
