For more than half a century, IBM has been committed to environmental and social leadership. We have been working to be at the forefront of sustainability efforts with both concrete goals and demonstrable results from our operations to supporting clients. After many decades, we are still committed and working to Create a Better Earth using our resources and innovative minds across the globe.

From an environmental perspective, although there is no doubt that we are facing a climate emergency, there is still a chance to make a big difference. Mr. Priyadarshi Shukla, UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) co-chair, said: “Having the right policies, infrastructure, and technology in place to enable changes to our lifestyles and behavior can result in a 40-70 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This offers significant untapped potential.”

And that is what IBM is doing: applying technologies that tap into that significant potential.
