Infineon to Become Carbon-Neutral by 2030
By Maitane Sardon
Infineon Technologies AG said Thursday that it will cut its
emissions by 70% by 2025 and will become carbon-neutral by 2030, as
it works toward aligning with the Paris Agreement on climate
To achieve the targets, the German semiconductor manufacturer
said it will reduce its direct emissions and its indirect
emissions, which are the result of its consumption of purchased
electricity or heat.
Infineon said it will expand its energy efficiency program to
better manage the electricity it consumes, invest in air treatment,
and will compensate for unavoidable emissions by purchasing green
"Climate change threatens the global ecosystem and so the very
existence of mankind. It's an acknowledged fact that we need to
act," said Infineon's chief executive Reinhard Ploss.
