Telecommunications equipment company Lumentum has made a commitment to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
Its headquarters in San Jose, California, a new research and development facility in Milan, Italy and a manufacturing site in Škofljica, Slovenia have all been transitioned to using 100% renewable electricity.
Its latest commitment includes accounting for Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions associated with its facilities’ energy consumption and Scope 3 emissions from its contract manufacturers, business travel and other energy-related activities.
Lumentum intends to continuously improve its products and processes to create the “safest and most efficient” products with the highest standards and reduce its environmental footprint by cutting its energy and water consumption, emissions and waste.
It has already achieved its 2023 target of reducing absolute energy consumption by 5% at all global research and development sites.
The company has published its inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report, covering its commitment to sustainable future and its performance against its sustainability goals.
Alan S. Lowe, President and CEO, Lumentum said: “Efforts to mitigate our environmental footprint and our contribution to climate change are core to the CSR programme. Our goal of achieving global net zero emissions by 2030 exemplifies our commitment to environmental leadership.
“Although we have participated in global initiative such as CDP for several years, this goal formalises our strong dedicated to climate action. Establishing onsite renewable energy generation, onsite energy efficiency projects and entering into power purchase agreements highlight our actions in pursuit of our goal.
“We take pride in realising 100% renewable energy procurement at our headquarters in FY21, two years ahead of schedule. This investment not only benefits Lumentum but also helps the city of San Jose in reaching its emissions reduction goals to provide 100% renewable energy by 2050. This is a sign of good things to come.”
