Red Hat, the world’s leading provider of business solutions, announces Open Source Software, expresses its ambitious vision of achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by the year 2027, in order to contribute to Supporting global efforts to address the impacts of climate change.

The Red Hat Vision for Operational Emissions by Year

is based on to a reliable scientific approach to limiting global warming by 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. The plan includes achieving carbon neutrality for Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 emissions linked to the company’s electricity consumption in third-party data centres. Red Hat achieved an exceptional achievement in this regard by developing and implementing a rigorous strategy to develop a system dedicated to calculating the level of emissions, starting from the year 2019.

Matt Hicks, executive vice president of Red Hat, said: “Red Hat is looking forward to To reduce its environmental footprint and preserve the integrity of the planet for future generations, by developing an integrated roadmap based on its open hybrid cloud strategy, which is compatible with IBM’s climate goals.

    CNCF Environmental Sustainability Team , To harness the power of open source and provide support to customers, partners, suppliers and other stakeholders, enabling them to achieve their climate and emissions reduction goals. Develop a methodology for measuring energy consumption rates in software and develop targets for reducing emissions.
