The renowned Chinese information and communication technology company, ZTE Corporation, has announced officially its participation in the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) and has held a pledge signing ceremony.
Under the guidelines of this initiative, ZTE will set science-based emission reduction targets in the short term and strive to achieve net zero emissions in the long term.
Within 5-10 years, the company aims to achieve significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, in line with the 1.5°C temperature rise limitation pathway, and ultimately achieve net emissions zero by the year 2050.
The SBTi has positioned itself as one of the most influential emission reduction mechanisms worldwide.
This initiative, launched in 2015 thanks to the collaboration of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), provides companies a well-defined and scientifically derived pathway to effectively reduce emissions.
ZTE joins IPMA to advance project management
Aligning with the goals of the Paris Agreement, the SBTi empowers companies to proactively mitigate the adverse impacts of climate change by applying science-based emission reduction strategies.
ZTE, as a leader in the information and communication industry, has maintained a systematic focus on reducing its operational and value chain emissions.
Through constant technological innovation, ZTE strives to improve the energy efficiency of its products and solutions. In addition, its green ICT infrastructure enables various industries to save energy and reduce carbon emissions.
In the year 2022, ZTE achieved a remarkable 7.48% reduction in its total carbon emissions compared to the previous year, while maintaining revenue growth. This achievement was possible thanks to the implementation of comprehensive and multidimensional energy saving and emission reduction measures.
ZTE’s joining the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) represents an important milestone on the company’s path to carbon neutrality.
