Unisys, an information technology services and consulting company, has announced its goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2030.

It follows a commitment made 2006 to reduce its carbon footprint by 75% by 2026, which was exceeded by around 10% based on 2021 data – five years ahead of schedule.

The latest target includes Scope 1 and 2 emissions and builds on its commitment towards the Carbon Disclosure Project and UN Global Compact.

Unisys plans to achieve its net zero goal through various initiatives, including developing and deploying technologies to reduce the company’s and its clients carbon footprint as well as optimising its real estate footprint.

In addition, it intends to boost energy efficiency, procure renewable power and purchase renewable credits (RECs) and carbon offsets to address the remaining emissions.

Peter Altabef, Unisys Chair and CEO said: “Unisys has long been dedicated to protecting our environment, building sustainable local and global communities and integrating environmental, social and governance considerations into our overall business strategy and decision making.

“We are proud of our success in achieving our 2026 goal five years early and we are taking a programmatic approach to the new 2030 net zero greenhouse gas emissions goal.”
