Seagate Technology Holdings plc today pledged to power its global footprint with 100% renewable energy by 2030, and to achieve carbon neutrality by 2040. The environmental sustainability goals are being announced in conjunction with the release of the company’s 16th Global Citizenship Annual Report (GCAR). Building on our Science Based Targets, we are expanding our actions in support of Seagate’s commitment to a sustainable datasphere and protecting the environment.

“Seagate’s value of Integrity compels us to take meaningful and measurable action on climate change,” said Joan Motsinger, senior vice president, business sustainability and transformation at Seagate. “Today, we publicly share our commitments, and we are well on our way to achieving these milestones both within our operations, with electricity sources, and with our suppliers and customers.”

Seagate will reach its environmental sustainability goals through commitments spanning Scope 1, 2, and 3 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as defined by The Greenhouse Gas Protocol and Reporting Standard.

“Seagate, along with industry peers and global stakeholders, must address the harm caused by materials depletion, power and water overuse, and waste,” said Balan Shanmuganathan, senior director of sustainability at Seagate. “That is why we are boldly and publicly committing to specific and aggressive reductions in greenhouse gas emissions to achieve carbon neutrality.”

In addition to establishing its long-term environmental sustainability goals, the company also published its 2021 fiscal year (July 2020-June 2021) Global Citizenship Annual Report. The report offers a comprehensive look at the company’s yearly progress towards meeting emission reduction targets, product stewardship, talent enablement, diversity goals, labor standards, fair trade, supply chain, and more. Highlights of the report include:

• Energy Conservation
o In FY2021, we saved approximately 23,000 MWh amounting to 14,000 tCO2e of electricity through energy conservation and efficiency initiatives, exceeding our conservation goal of 10,000 MWh for the year.
• Recycling
