Qualcomm promises zero carbon emissions by 2040

The tech industry is growing more aware of its effects on the environment. Several companies have already pledged to reduce their carbon footprint within a certain timeframe. Apple, the most notable example, has promised a completely carbon-neutral company by 2030. Joining that group, Qualcomm has also pledged to reduce their carbon emissions by 2040.

If the company is successful, Qualcomm will have net-zero carbon emissions by 2040. The company even has a timeline ready for its goals. By 2030, they hope to reduce their emissions by 50 percent. Then, by 2040, everything would be ground down to zero.

To be more specific, Qualcomm will reduce its Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 50 percent and its Scope 3 emissions by 25 percent in 2030. Scope 1 emissions refer to those emitted directly by the company. Scope 2 emissions refer to those emitted indirectly from the electricity and heating that Qualcomm users. Finally, Scope 3 refers to those emitted directly by suppliers on Qualcomm’s chain. Naturally, the third type is harder to accomplish since it involves other companies taking the pledge as well.

However, the company did not explain how it plans to do this. Other companies, taking the pledge themselves, have done more controversial decisions including removing free chargers from their product boxes.

On the bright side, whatever Qualcomm does will likely help others accomplish the same goal too. It does mean good things for the industry that more companies are working together to make the world greener.
