What is decarbonization?

Net-zero is a state where we add no incremental greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. This means achieving a balance between carbon emissions and carbon sinks through a combination of deep decarbonization and carbon sequestration.

Action required

The climate challenge is a chance for businesses to lead the way to sustainability while building reputational and competitive advantage. Carbon reduction improves efficiencies, reduces costs and drives innovation to achieve success. Put simply, climate action makes commercial sense.

How to reduce your carbon intensity

Our Decarbonization Center of Excellence guides global organizations through three phases to reduce carbon in core digital and business processes. No matter your industry, we’ll work with you on individual components of the phases or all three end-to-end, depending on your needs.

Decarbonizing retail, hospitality, transportation and logistics

As pressure from investors, consumers and employees mounts, retail giants are targeting sustainability — and beyond — with big commitments to restore land and water resources. This applies across their supply chains, and into the transportation and logistics industries.
