AstraZeneca commits to being carbon negative by 2030

AstraZeneca has announced its ambition to have zero carbon emissions from its global operations by 2025 and to ensure its entire value chain is carbon negative by 2030, bringing forward decarbonisation plans by more than a decade.

Launched at the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, AstraZeneca’s ‘Ambition Zero Carbon’ strategy accelerates the Company’s existing science-based targets, developed in 2015, by doubling energy productivity and using renewable energy for both power and heat, as well as switching to a 100% electric vehicle fleet five years earlier than originally planned.

The company also said that it is pledging to engage its suppliers to reduce their direct emissions through to 2030 and identify carbon removal options that will lead to more carbon dioxide (CO2) removed from the atmosphere than added to it, recognising that the total emissions from its value chain partners are significantly larger than its own direct operations.
