Protecting our planet

Our 2025 climate goals

As we are most directly responsible for Scope 1 and 2 emissions, we have set an ambitious goal to be climate neutral in these scopes by 2025. 

For Scope 1, this means we aim to transition to a clean car fleet for our leased company vehicles, replacing petrol cars with electric or hybrid cars, and offsetting any remaining emissions.

For Scope 2, this means that over the following years we aim to move towards renewable energy for all our owned sites, looking for local solutions and partnerships where possible and using renewable energy attribute certifications to offset any remaining emissions.

In addition, we aim to halve the carbon footprint related to company air travel by 2025, compared to 2019 – relative to the scope of the business and assuming our current business configuration and operating model – to a large degree by maintaining the remote working practices incorporated during 2020. Remote collaboration is core to GN’s product offering, and the pandemic has demonstrated to us, and many other companies, that this is feasible and even advantageous in many situations.

In 2021, GN committed to setting additional science-based climate targets, to be developed in 2022, and joined the Business Coalition for 1.5C.
