AVEVA signs up for Race to Zero; aims net zero emissions by 2050

  • By ICN Bureau | July 27, 2021

AVEVA, a global leader in industrial software, driving digital transformation and sustainability, today announced that it has become the 47th company in the FTSE 100 to join the United Nation’s Race to Zero campaign.

“By joining the Race to Zero initiative and aligning to the highest level of ambition for climate targets under the Paris Agreement, AVEVA is leading by example on climate action. We are also pleased to be joining many of our customers in this initiative, as well as key partners, including Microsoft, Accenture and Schneider Electric, that have already committed to this pledge,” commented Peter Herweck, AVEVA CEO.

Race to Zero is a global campaign which aims to mobilize a coalition of leading net zero initiatives and is the largest ever alliance committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050. Collectively participants now cover nearly 25% of global CO2 emissions and over 50% of GDP.

AVEVA’s objective is to build momentum and spur rapid action around decarbonization ahead of COP26, where governments must strengthen their contributions to the Paris Agreement.

Andrew Griffith, the UK’s Net Zero Business Champion said, “Congratulations to AVEVA on joining the UN’s Race to Zero campaign. This demonstrates great leadership and goes hand in hand with the company’s work to support clients like National Grid and Anglian Water in creating a positive impact on the environment.”

Herweck said, “By being part of the Race to Zero initiative, we are leading by example and setting the direction we will take to drive sustainability throughout our own operations, and the software we develop for our customers globally. We will continue to formalize our sustainability pledges across all our focus areas as well as develop interim goals to help us report and communicate on our progress, and we look forward to sharing more details in the months to come.”
