Climate Change Mitigation
Climate change is one of today’s biggest challenges. To solve this challenge, we believe that industry must play a vital role. However, we also face increasing regulations and requirements related to reducing energy consumption and mitigating climate change. For example, many Ericsson customers have implemented climate neutrality requirements across their entire value chains, which means that all operations must be greenhouse gas emissions neutral.
In the Ericsson Code of Conduct for Business Partners, Ericsson states that all suppliers and other business partners must develop and implement plans to reduce their carbon footprint under the 1.5 degree scenario presented by the Paris of the UNFCCC. Meeting the 1.5 degree scenario means that we as businesses must reduce greenhouse gas emissions to what science deems sufficient to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial level.
