Nokia announced that it will reduce emissions by 50 percent across both its own operations and products in use by 2030.
The company’s new Science Based Targets (SBTs) fulfill its commitment to recalibrate in line with a 1.5°C global warming scenario.
Nokia first committed to SBTs in 2017, initially with goals based on limiting global warming to 2°C. The company achieved 90 percent of its target savings within its own operations (scope 1 and 2) 11 years ahead of target and was on track to deliver its ‘scope 3’ targets for products in use with its customers.
Nokia is now adopting more ambitious targets which consider a 1.5°C warming limit, starting with 2019 as the baseline. These have been expanded to cover a broader base, close to 100 percent of the company’s current product portfolio. They also now include emissions from both logistics and assembly factories within its supply chain, as well as emissions from Nokia’s own operations.
Pekka Lundmark, president and CEO of Nokia, said: “We have led the way in reducing emissions from our own operations and helping our customers to do the same by continuously innovating to make our products more energy efficient in recent years.”
