Emerson, a global technology and software company providing innovative solutions for customers in industrial, commercial and residential markets, has announced its ambition for net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045.

That includes Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, aligned with the standards set by the Science-based Target initiative.

By 2030, Emerson aims to achieve net zero across its own operations for Scope 1 and 2 emissions and a 25% reduction in its Scope 3 value chain emissions, compared to 2021 levels.

It also aims to source 100% renewable electricity and ensure 40% of its leadership positions globally include women by 2030.

The company’s Automation Solutions business helps process, hybrid and discrete manufacturers maximise production and protect personnel and the environment while optimising their energy and operating costs while its Commercial and Solutions business helps ensure human comfort and health, protect food quality and safety, advance energy efficiency and create sustainable infrastructure.

Mike Train, Emerson’s Senior Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer said: “In addition to the depth of our own sustainability roadmap, Emerson’s products, software and services help enable our customers, suppliers and partners to achieve their sustainability objectives.

“In the face of climate change, we believe driving at-scale adoption of energy transition solutions can make a net zero future a reality.”
