Arm has committed to achieving net-zero carbon by 2030, 20 years ahead of the target outlined in the United Nations' Paris Climate Agreement. The agreement aims to strengthen the global response to climate change.
The scientific evidence is clear: excess carbon in our atmosphere is trapping heat and changing the world’s climate. Already, the global temperature has risen by one degree Celsius. Climate experts agree that we must take urgent action to bring down emissions and combat this trend.
The commitment of Arm means that the company will take a science-based approach to cut absolute emissions from their business operations by at least 42 %. Additionally, Arm wants to reinforce and drive innovation in tech-based carbon sequestration solutions, while empowering their employees and supply chain to make low-carbon, sustainable choices.
Today, 70 % of the world’s population uses Arm technology. Arm’s ongoing focus on the environment and sustainable business is guided by their core beliefs to establish a culture of social responsibility which steers their behaviour and operations as part of the broader global community. While Arm doesn’t manufacture devices, their ecosystem of more than 1000 technology partners has shipped more than 180 billion Arm-based chips. So, the company also wants the whole ecosystem to treat lightly, too. This commitment complements the ongoing efforts to increase power efficiency and reduce the emissions associated with deployment of IP.
