The theme for Earth Day 2023 is Invest In Our Planet with a call to action to solve the climate crisis, create a prosperous and sustainable future, and restore nature to build a healthy planet for future generations. The call to action includes coming together in partnership with governments, businesses, and civil society to take responsibility and be accountable to accelerate the change towards a green, prosperous, and equitable future.
Keysight is helping to build a better planet by accelerating innovation to connect and secure the world and employing a global business framework of ethical, environmentally sustainable, and socially responsible operations. Three core principles underscore this commitment:
These principles align with Earth Day 2023 in building a healthy economy for all.
At Keysight, we care for our people, our planet, and the communities where we operate. At the heart of this is a sincere belief in conducting business in an ethical, legally compliant, environmentally sustainable, and socially responsible manner. Together we can make a difference.
Net zero emissions for a sustainable future
Keysight’s net zero emissions goal demonstrates our commitment to limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius per the Paris Agreement framework. This pursuit is in line with our company’s values:
Keysight will achieve net zero emissions in company operations by the end of fiscal year 2040. The best way to accomplish this goal is through energy efficiency and conservation and transitioning to renewable energy sources.
Using science-based targets (SBTs) is the best way to measure progress in greenhouse gas emissions reduction and to ensure targets are consistent with the latest climate change scenarios. Because of this, Keysight is committed to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and has submitted proposed targets in all three scopes of emissions for validation.
As I reflect on Earth Day 2023, I am inspired by Keysight’s commitment to build business resiliency in the face of climate change. I also know that more work is needed through a global cooperative effort to act on climate change now to lower climate risks by 2050. The question we all need to ask ourselves is what intentional daily action will you take to Invest in our Planet? To see real change and protect our planet, we must invest in it.
