Net zero and carbon neutral commitments have been rapidly growing, providing some hope in the face of ever-growing urgent signs that climate change is speeding up and bringing with it a whole range of negative impacts. The current pace of change however is far behind the pace we need. By 2030, global emissions must be cut in half. “30·60” is now a major focus in China. The country is committed to hit peak emissions before 2030 and carbon neutrality before 2060.
At PwC, we believe the business community has a key role to play in making that happen. And we are determined to play our part. That is why we have made a worldwide science-based commitment to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. The commitment includes supporting our clients to reduce their emissions as well as reducing those from PwC’s operations and suppliers.
In July 2021, the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) validated PwC’s targets to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 50% in absolute terms from 2019 levels by 2030 in line with a 1.5 degree scenario. Importantly, PwC’s targets go beyond scope 1 and 2 emissions to include PwC’s largest indirect scope 3 emissions.

“The threat of climate change is real. However, it is possible to reduce our carbon emissions if we each play our part and take bold and decisive climate action. Doing nothing is not an option.”
