Net Zero Commitments

Net zero means taking responsibility for our entire carbon footprint. We extend that responsibility from the suppliers we work with to the solutions we build. We are committed to achieving absolute reductions and mitigating residual emissions with carbon avoidance and removal projects. VMware’s emission reduction goals validated by the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) provide the foundation for our journey to net zero and include:


  • Reducing Scope 1 and 2 emissions 50 percent by 2030
  • Reducing employee commute and fuel and energy-related emissions 50 percent by 2030
  • Engaging 75 percent of our suppliers (by spend) to set their own science-based targets by 2025

Driving Operational Efficiency

VMware incorporates emissions reductions into our daily business operations by improving the resource efficiency and resiliency of our buildings and data centers. We are committed to green buildings and have achieved LEED certification for 20 of our sites globally. 


Procuring 100% Renewable Energy

Reducing our overall demand for electricity is an essential part of our net zero strategy. We source 100 percent of electricity in our global facilities and collocated data centers from renewable sources.
