Net Zero by 2050: A Bold but Necessary Goal for Emerson
Sustainability is a pressing issue facing our industries, evolving from a question of reputation to one of business sustainability. Customers and employees are making decisions based on a company's commitment to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance. In response to this growing demand, industrial manufacturers and energy providers are searching for solutions to achieve their environmental sustainability objectives. Meanwhile, employees want to work for companies that take meaningful action to make a positive impact, and shareholders want to invest in companies that address these issues while creating sustainable value. Net Zero by 2050 goals are important for building a better future, but immediate action is necessary to address the burden of climate change. Automation, which has transformed business performance in areas of production, safety, and profitability, can also play a significant role in making companies more sustainable.
The Role of Automation in Solving the Climate Crisis
However, meeting the Net Zero by 2050 goals will not be easy or straightforward. This Emerson site will address key sustainability issues, including decarbonization, emissions management, electrification, and energy efficiency, and highlight the role automation can play in finding solutions. The site will also focus on measurable actions Emerson is taking to enhance our approach to environmental sustainability and define our role in making the world a better place for future generations. Meeting the Net Zero by 2050 goals will require effort and collaboration, but it is possible and our responsibility to make it happen. We cannot leave the sustainability burden to future generations when we have technology available today to make real progress. Although not everyone may agree on the science, it is our legacy to leave the world in a better environmental state for future generations to enjoy. It is a responsibility we all have influence over today.
