Procter & Gamble publicizes a brand new dedication to be carbon impartial
Procter & Gamble goes beyond its previous scientifically sound goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by additionally expanding a portfolio of natural climate protection solutions
The Procter & Gamble The company has announced a new commitment to make its global operations climate neutral over the decade through a range of measures to protect, improve and restore nature.
Given that the next decade will be a crucial window for the world to accelerate progress in climate change, P&G will go beyond its existing science-based goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by adding a portfolio of natural climate protection solutions is expanded.
These efforts will bring a CO2 benefit that will offset the remaining emissions over the next 10 years and allow P&G businesses to be carbon neutral for the decade. According to current estimates, the company will have to balance ~ 30 million tons of carbon from 2020 to 2030.
Procter & Gamble continues to prioritize reducing emissions. P&G has the existing goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50% and buying 100% renewable electricity by 2030, and is on track to meet its 2030 commitments. In addition, P & G will continue to pursue new wind, solar and geothermal projects to further accelerate the transition to renewable energies.
These efforts are consistent with the climate science requirements required to ensure that the company will help limit global temperature increases and continue well beyond 2030. However, based on today's technologies, there are some emissions that cannot be eliminated by 2030. By investing in natural climate solutions, the company will accelerate its impact over the next 10 years.
Recent reports have shown that the world is not achieving the required greenhouse gas emissions reductions and that the next decade is a critical window for reducing emissions and is on the way to limiting the temperature rise to 1.5 ° C.
This task will be much more difficult if society doesn't curb emissions before the end of the decade. By 2050, carbon emissions will have to fall to or close to zero. If we do not act now, future generations will be at greater risk from the effects of climate change and it will be more difficult to achieve the global goals of the Paris Agreement.
"Climate change is ongoing and action is needed now," said David Taylor, chairman, president and chief executive officer of P&G. "By reducing our carbon footprint and investing in natural climate solutions, we will be for the decade of ours Doing business in a carbon neutral manner and helping protect vulnerable ecosystems and communities around the world.
