Environmental Sustainability

We are committed to protecting the planet

The world faces a critical moment in tackling the challenges of climate change, environmental pollution, and responsible use of resources. We are minimizing our own environmental footprint while supporting those who are working to improve global environmental sustainability.

We are carbon neutral

Since 2018, we have been carbon neutral. We are committed to reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and offsetting those we cannot yet eliminate.

We have set targets to reduce our emissions in line with the Paris Agreement, which we publicly support. Our targets include reducing direct emissions and those from purchased energy by 60 percent by 2030 and by 90 percent by 2050.
