Logitech Commits to Ambitious 1.5°C Climate Pledge and 100% Renewable Electricity Goal
Today Logitech extended its commitment to future generations by setting ambitious sustainability goals for its products, packaging, and operations. Logitech commits to support the Paris Agreement, pledging to establish science-based targets to limit its greenhouse gas emissions to support the ambitious 1.5°C trajectory by 2050. The Company is participating in the Science-Based Target Initiative (SBTi), and supporting science-based objectives that can be measured across industry and across the globe to affect the real change needed now.
As a member of RE100, Logitech commits to source 100% of the Company’s global electricity consumption from renewable sources by 2030. The Company is working to hit the target early – it has already achieved 75% renewable electricity consumption due to its early efforts at its Lausanne, Switzerland and Cork, Ireland offices which now run on 100% renewable electricity. The Logitech manufacturing plant in Suzhou, China, is also a certified CarbonNeutral building through the purchase of renewable electricity and carbon offsets, reducing 17,000 tonnes of carbon each year.
The carbon footprint of the materials, design, manufacturing, and shipment of all Logitech G and ASTRO Gaming products have been reduced to net-zero emissions. Logitech commits to maintain carbon neutral gaming products and intends to expand the certification to other product categories in the future. Logitech has converted to sustainable packaging on multiple new Logitech G and MX Master 3 products, started to introduce recycled plastic in its mice, keyboards, and webcams, and removed PVC from new product cables and feasible external parts.
