HP, Procter & Gamble join companies committed to reducing emissions

Computer maker HP, consumer goods company Procter & Gamble, and coffee capsule company Nespresso have joined a corporate commitment to dramatically reducing their greenhouse gas emissions for nearly two decades.

BERLIN – Computer maker HP, consumer goods company Procter & Gamble, and coffee capsule company Nespresso have joined a corporate commitment to dramatically reducing their greenhouse gas emissions for nearly two decades.

The Climate Pledge, a group of companies and organizations led by Amazon, said Monday that it has signed up 86 new members for its voluntary measures. In total, the group now has 201 members with global annual revenues of more than $ 1.8 billion, he said.

Other new members include the telecommunications company BT, the truck manufacturer Scania and the Selfridges department store chain.

Together, the companies aim to reduce nearly 2 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide by 2040, more than 5% of the current global total.

While group members are encouraged to eliminate as many emissions as possible, those that cannot be avoided should be fully offset within the next two decades. That means paying for measures to ensure that as many emissions are absorbed by then as companies continue to emit.

Scientists say the world needs to achieve ‘net zero’ emissions by 2050 if it is to meet the Paris climate agreement goal of preventing temperatures from rising more than 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 Fahrenheit) by the end of the century in comparison with pre-industrial times. .
