onsemi has committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2040 和 we are implementing an aggressive strategy to reach this goal. 但是净零是什么意思呢? How does this compare to what our competitors 和 other companies are doing around climate change?
并不是所有的气候承诺都是平等的. You have likely seen companies commit to being carbon neutral or net zero, 但是有什么区别呢?
- 碳中和 allows a company to continue their business-as-usual practices if they purchase enough carbon offsets to negate their emission activities. 碳中和 commitments do not require companies to eliminate any present or future emission from their operations. 碳中和的承诺不符合 巴黎协定.
- 零排放的 需要有雄心壮志的人.5°C对齐 以科学为基础的目标 for emission reductions across its full value chain before purchasing carbon offsets equal to the emissions that cannot be avoided. This means that the company ensures direct emission will not contribute to a global temperature rise exceeding 1.比前工业化时代高出5摄氏度. 净零承诺与 巴黎协定.
这个承诺, we have set the most ambitious goal among our competitors 和 will surpass the 巴黎协定’s goal by a full decade. 10BET手机版注册的战略是与 BSR, a global nonprofit organization that works with its network of more than 250 member companies to develop sustainable business strategies 和 solutions through consulting, 研究和跨界别合作. 10BET手机版注册的战略分为三个支柱:
- 利用效率 – Every ton of carbon dioxide (CO₂) avoided is a ton we do not need to eliminate or offset. 10BET手机版注册的 employees have already demonstrated their innovative abilities to create such efficiencies. 10BET手机版注册减少了12个排放量,101 metric tons of CO₂ in 2020 through 49 projects centered on increased energy efficiencies. 在设施的投资, processes 和 equipment to increase energy efficiency can reduce our greenhouse gas footprint by as much as 15% by 2040. We will also be focusing on our process gas usage as there is substantial opportunity for efficiency in this area.
- 可再生能源 -实现净零, companies need to invest in renewable energy equal to the emissions associated with their energy consumption. Offsets cannot be used for electricity-related emission in a net-zero model. We will transition to an emissions-free renewable energy portfolio to achieve this goal. 10BET手机版注册计划到2030年使用50%的可再生能源，到2040年使用100%. We will engage with energy providers to identify power purchase agreements (PPAs) in locations where it is feasible to to recoup investment costs in long-term agreements. To assist in our shift to renewable energy, we will be joining the 可再生能源买家联盟 to ensure a rapid transition to a cleaner zero-carbon energy future.
- 偏移量和影响力 -无法消除的非电力排放, 10BET手机版注册将购买认证的碳抵消等于他们的数量. Green-E 和 黄金标准 certified offsets are the most credible 和 will be prioritized in our strategy. Science-based targets also require goals for reducing emissions in the supply chain. 10BET手机版注册将利用10BET手机版注册的 负责任的商业联盟 成为促使供应商参与减排的成员.
The corporate social responsibility (CSR) team will work closely with the environmental health 和 safety, 和 facilities teams to ensure processes 和 frameworks are in place to measure our progress against our net-zero goal. 10BET手机版注册的 企业社会责任报告 对于任何想了解10BET手机版注册进展的人来说，这将是一个关键的资源吗. You will notice that we report our emissions on a scope 1, 2 和 3 basis. The scope of the emissions tells us what kind of emission they are 和 how they relate to our business operations:
- 范围1 emissions are direct emissions from company-owned 和 -controlled resources. Some examples of scope 1 emissions include emissions from company-owned vehicles, emissions from fuels used in heating or furnaces 和 process emissions from process chemicals used in industrial processes. 在10BET手机版注册的净零战略中, we will eliminate 和/or offset our scope 1 emissions through capitalizing on efficiencies 和 offsets 和 influence.
- 范围2 emissions are indirect emissions from the generation of purchased energy. 对10BET手机版注册来说，这意味着10BET手机版注册购买的电力. 在10BET手机版注册的净零战略中, we will eliminate 和/or offset our scope 2 emissions through renewable energy.
- 范围3 emissions are indirect emission that occur in the value chain of the company, including both upstream 和 downstream emissions (see graphic below for details). 范围3排放的一些例子包括商务旅行, 10BET手机版注册的供应商在制造10BET手机版注册购买的产品时产生的排放, employees commuting 和 emissions from the transportation of our products to the end-user. 在10BET手机版注册的净零战略中, we will eliminate 和/or offset our scope 3 emissions through offsets 和 by encouraging our suppliers to implement their own emission reduction targets. 2020年，10BET手机版注册开始跟踪商务旅行. As the journey continues, we’ll build the rest of scope 3 emissions into our reporting.
10BET手机版注册所有的排放数据都是由第三方公司验证的， Trucost. Trucost是S&P Global, is a leader in carbon 和 environmental data 和 risk analysis. 你可以阅读10BET手机版注册的保证声明在47-48页 2020年企业社会责任报告.
While there is going to be some learning around our net-zero goal 和 it might take time to see results, 10BET手机版注册会衡量10BET手机版注册的进步，10BET手机版注册会做得更好. We have a plan 和 are dedicated to its execution from the top down. 致力于净零是正确的事情.
