Our Sustainability Vision
Technology has the power to help build a better future for everyone. By connecting everyone, everywhere, Arm and its extensive ecosystem can help close the digital divide, bridging the gap between those who have access to digital technologies and the 3.7 billion who currently do not.
But connectivity cannot come at the expense of our planet. To minimize the environmental impact of our technology, we aspire to decarbonize compute, leveraging our expertise in low-power compute to do more work per watt, providing a unique opportunity to drive up connectivity while driving down carbon emissions.
This approach is enabled by our people – global problem solvers – and underpinned by trust, through our commitment to responsible technology.
Ethical Business Practices
Arm’s strength is the caliber of its people, and how we conduct business - fairly, openly, and with integrity. As Arm’s business continues to grow and develop, our governance framework also evolves to ensure it stays relevant. This includes our Code of Conduct, upon which our ethics and compliance program is built.
Tackling Our Emissions
In September 2020, we committed to taking a science-based approach to cut absolute emissions from our business operations by at least 42% to achieve net zero carbon by 2030 – 20 years ahead of the 2050 target outlined in the United Nations' Paris Climate Agreement. For unabated emissions, we will invest in accredited carbon sequestration projects while exploring ways to further reduce our emissions, even as we grow.
We will source 100% renewable energy.
We will achieve 20% absolute reduction in energy use.
We will achieve 7% absolute reduction in emissions from travel for work.
We will engage with our supply chain to set sustainable procurement targets.
We will support and drive innovation in nature- and tech-based carbon sequestration solutions.
We will empower our people to make low-carbon choices.
Creating Positive Impact Through Partnership
We work with trusted partners – such as UNICEF, GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation – to take on some of the world’s most complex challenges: climate change, extreme poverty, global health and well-being, and economic growth.
Together, we can create positive impact at scale through building trust in technology, enabling our people, improving lives, and supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals).
Driving Change in Our Industry
2030Vision is an Arm-founded, cross-sector collaboration designed to harness 4IR technologies to achieve the Global Goals. Developed in partnership with business, academia, and NGOs, 2030Vision aims to unite the technology sector behind the Goals.
