Red Hat aims to achieve zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
Software maker Red Hat, now owned by IBM, has announced plans to cut greenhouse gas emissions to zero by the end of the decade. This initiative is expected to contribute to overcoming the climate crisis. Red Hat says the project is in line with a science-based program to limit global warming.
The project provides for a 65% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2025 compared to 2019. To achieve this goal, it is planned to increase energy efficiency and purchase renewable energy, which is expected to account for 75% of consumption by the middle of the decade. By 2030, Red Hat intends to provide 90% of its energy costs from renewable sources. It should be noted that IBM set the same goals as part of a project to improve the environmental situation back in 2021.
Red Hat plans to involve its partners in the project. The company believes that open source products will help stakeholders achieve their climate goals and reduce emissions of harmful gases into the atmosphere. "By shaping a comprehensive strategy based on our open hybrid cloud model and aligned with IBM's overall goals, we will reduce our environmental impact and save the planet for future generations," said Red Hat President and CEO.
