GlobalFoundries Sets ‘Journey to Zero Carbon’ Goal to Reduce GHG Emissions by 25 Percent
GlobalFoundries (GF), the global semiconductor manufacturer with a plant in Essex Junction, today announced its goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent from 2020 to 2030, as the company expands its global manufacturing capacity. Building on GF’s history of environmental responsibility and ongoing greenhouse gas emissions reduction, this new Journey to Zero Carbon initiative reinforces the company’s commitment to sustainable and environmentally efficient manufacturing operations. GF is based in Malta, NY.
To meet the goal of reducing absolute greenhouse emissions by 25%, GF will apply a variety of approaches and investments tailored to its global manufacturing footprint. These approaches include enhancing manufacturing emission controls, further improving energy efficiency, and sourcing renewable and lower-carbon energy. The 25% reduction goal encompasses all of GF’s fabs and will include its newest fab currently under construction in Singapore.
“We recognize climate change is an unprecedented global challenge, and Journey to Zero Carbon is GF’s commitment to growing responsibly and reducing our emissions in a meaningful way,” said GF CEO Tom Caulfield. “GF has a proven track record of environmentally responsible manufacturing and operations, and Journey to Zero Carbon is the natural next step for us to take. It’s the right thing do to – for our business, for our global team, and for our planet.”
GF’s Journey to Zero Carbon initiative supports the aims of the Paris Agreement, which calls for significant reductions by 2030 on a path to global “Net Zero” greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. GF’s announcement is aligned with the company’s “Journey to Zero” efforts aimed at workplace safety and environmental responsibility.
