DXC Technology Commits to Reducing Global Emissions

Published on: 8 April 2022 04:38 PM

DXC Technology, the global information technology services and consulting company, has recently announced its commitment to reducing global emissions in agreement with the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi). The recent developments in the company help it contribute positively and meaningfully to scale down the imminent threat of climate crisis.

The company has also pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 55 per cent by 2025 against its 2019 baseline. It joins over 2000 international companies to set emissions reduction targets through the SBTi.

The SBTi is a global association of world institutions, including CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).

The association will bolster businesses to set their climate targets to reduce emissions in line with the latest technology. The SBTi will help define and promote best practices in science-based target setting, offer resources and guidance to reduce hurdles to adoption, and assess and approve companies' targets independently.

Chris Drumgoole, DXC’s Chief Operating Officer, said: "DXC’s commitment to setting near-term emissions reduction targets and reducing greenhouse gas emissions is an investment in our future. This is also a key part of our journey as a virtual-first company, where we have equipped more than 99% of our employees to work virtually, securely, and flexibly from any location of their choosing, with the technology and tools to support their work.”

Besides the company's adherence to SBTi, its global environmental sustainability targets are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. DXC targets energy consumption reduction, freshwater conservation, greenhouse gas emissions reductions, the use and purchase of renewable energies, the reduction of general waste, and the elimination of electronic waste in landfills. It also supports and guides its customers on their corporate responsibility and sustainability journeys.
