March 11, 2021 /CSRwire/ - Qualcomm is proud to announce that we were recognized by The Climate Registry as Climate Registered™ Platinum. The Climate Registry is a nonprofit organization that is governed by U.S. states and operates the Carbon Footprint Registry, which is North America’s largest voluntary registry for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Qualcomm earned this recognition by publicly reporting a third-party verified GHG emissions inventory for our operations. This data will enable us to continue to track and credibly report our climate initiatives and GHG reductions over time.
To better address the climate-related risks and opportunities across the Company, Qualcomm recently conducted our first climate scenario analysis in 2020 and have included Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) indices in our 2020 Corporate Responsibility report. We also recently launched an ambitious 2025 goal to reduce absolute Scope 1 and Scope 2 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 30 percent from its global operations compared to a 2014 baseline.
“Organizations that become Climate Registered™ are the leaders in a growing movement to address climate change by managing and reducing emissions at the subnational level,” said Amy Holm, Executive Director of The Climate Registry. “We have just over a decade to take action that will ensure we avoid the worst effects of climate change. This kind of leadership is needed now more than ever.”
