Nokia pledges to halve emissions by 2030

Nokia pledges to halve emissions by 2030

Nokia has committed to reducing its emissions by 50% across its operations and products in use by 2030.

The company has set new science-based targets, which consider a 1.5°C global warming scenario.

The new targets cover a wider base, including 100% of the company’s current products and emissions from logistics and assembly factories within Nokia’s supply chain.

Nokia’s products in use make up the largest portion of its overall carbon footprint and it has worked to ensure better hardware and software energy efficiency to achieve its 2030 aim.

CEO of Nokia, Pekka Lundmark, 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.

“But climate change is a race against time. These tougher, new, scientifically-calibrated climate targets mean we will go further and faster to reduce our carbon footprint and ensure sustainability is at the heart of our product design and the smart solutions we enable.”
