Digital workflow company ServiceNow announced a significant acceleration of its climate goals, committing to achieving net zero emissions by 2030, twenty years ahead of its prior target.
ServiceNow stated that it has set science-based emissions reduction targets that are focused on internal reduction programs and supplier engagement initiatives, and has pledged to submit its targets for approval to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
The company’s efforts will focus heavily on its Scope 3, or value chain, emissions. In a third-party assessment by climate-focused organization Watershed, ServiceNow determined that 93% of its carbon footprint comes directly from its value chain. The company said that it will roll out a comprehensive supplier engagement model next year, aiming to collaborate with and support its suppliers on their sustainability journeys. ServiceNow also stated that it will target sustainability in its data centers, including initiatives to support datacenter operations teams to become Certified Data Center Sustainability Professionals.
Additionally, ServiceNow stated that it will donate one million dollars over the next two years to nonprofit organizations focused on addressing climate change and the acceleration of decarbonization globally.
Gina Mastantuono, ServiceNow Chief Financial Officer, said:
“As ServiceNow becomes the defining enterprise software company of the 21st century, we are steadfast in our goal to create positive impact in the world. We’re committed to making an impact and changing the way the world works by reaching Net-Zero GHG emissions two decades early – a crucial step in the right direction.”
