AVEVA, a global leader in industrial software, driving digital transformation and sustainability, has committed to 15 measurable, timebound Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals for 2025 that aim at advancing a better future for all by transforming the way its partners use the planet’s resources
The targets, published in the new AVEVA 2022 Sustainability Progress Report, deepen action around three strategic areas: AVEVA’s Technology Handprint, Operational Footprint and Inclusive Culture.
With a portfolio of solutions that is already helping customers across 12 industry verticals to achieve efficiency gains and reduce greenhouse-gas emissions (GHGs), developing and progressing towards the 2025 goals is the next step to achieving the company’s ambitious ESG agenda. These ambitions include accelerating the transition to a low carbon future by helping global industry to decarbonise through digital transformation and new sustainability solutions, as well as leading by example on climate action.
“We’re committed to contributing to a just, healthy and equitable world, placing sustainability considerations at the heart of our business,” said Peter Herweck, CEO of AVEVA. “Our software is uniquely positioned at the nexus of the digital transformation and energy transition and has helped customers reduce CO2 emissions by 9-15%, while delivering energy savings of 15-34%. AVEVA’s new ESG goals for 2025 reinforce our commitment to improving our own operational sustainability-related considerations, while continuing to help our customers deliver on their net-zero targets.”
Progress is already well underway on several of AVEVA’s 2025 ESG goals, in the area of developing and deploying green product design principles; developing and launching a sustainability innovation programme, including establishing a sustainability centre of excellence; reducing GHGs across its operations, by using renewable energy in its offices and investing in energy-efficient buildings; reducing GHGEs associated with business travel; and progress towards gender equality, with women accounting for 33.5% of hires in 2022 and one in five leadership positions now held by women
