Greenhouse Gas Reduction Target

As part of our commitment to addressing climate change, Sierra Wireless has set an absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction target to reduce Scopes 1, 2, and 3 GHG emissions by 27.5% by 2030. This goal is relative to 2019 levels.

The scale of reduction is aligned to the well below 2°C scenario and all facilities under Sierra Wireless’ operational control are included. This target has not been externally verified, however, best practices and guidance from the SBTi, GHG Protocol, and GRI-305 have been integrated while setting this target. We look forward to sharing more about our GHG target in our 2021 Corporate Sustainability Report.
