Zebra Technologies’ Emissions Reduction Targets Validated by the Science Based Targets Initiative
Zebra Technologies Corporation , an innovator at the front line of business with solutions and partners that deliver a performance edge, announced its emissions reduction targets have been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), joining more than 1,500 companies globally. The SBTi is a partnership between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The initiative defines and promotes best practice in science-based target setting and independently assesses companies’ targets.

Zebra’s commitment includes a 50% reduction in absolute scopes 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030 from its 2020 baseline. The company also commits to reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions from purchased goods and services and the use of sold products by 15% within the same timeframe.
“Zebra is proud to be part of the climate solution and committed to investing in climate initiatives with a sound economic proposition,” said Anders Gustafsson, Chief Executive Officer of Zebra Technologies. “We look forward to closely collaborating with our employees, customers, partners and suppliers to drive our decarbonization goals across our business and entire value chain.”

The targets covering GHG emissions from Zebra’s operations (scopes 1 and 2) are consistent with reductions required to keep warming to 1.5°C, the most ambitious goal of the Paris Agreement. Zebra’s emissions target from its value chain (scope 3) meets the SBTi’s criteria for ambitious value chain goals, in line with current best practice.
Zebra’s low-carbon transition plan includes supplier engagement to reduce emissions related to purchased goods, product innovation to reduce energy during customer use, and its partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy Better Climate Initiative for technical assistance on its science-based targets.
