GE Energy Transition Commitments
We are strengthening our commitment to sustainability and setting a goal to become carbon neutral in our facilities and operations by 2030. We are targeting the majority of our progress through absolute reductions of direct emissions and energy use achieved through operational investments, smart power sourcing and elimination of waste.
This year, GE announced a new ambition to be a net zero company by 2050, encompassing not just GE’s operations, but also the Scope 3 emissions from the use of sold products. We look forward to partnering closely with our customers to help them succeed in meeting their own ambitions.
GE supports the science and goals expressed in the Paris Agreement to reduce global carbon emissions. We joined top companies in calling for an ambitious U.S. climate policy and supported the first-ever global standards regulating aircraft greenhouse gas emissions.

Following this announcement, we are continuing to focus and invest in our core renewable energy and power generation businesses, working to make electricity more sustainable, affordable, reliable and accessible and helping customers to reduce their emissions.
The future of energy
GE is committed to tackling the world’s biggest challenges and believes that climate change is one of the most pressing issues we face today, but also a strategic opportunity for GE. We are focused on playing an essential role in advancing the global energy transition and building decarbonization solutions for a world that works, and we are uniquely positioned to help meet the world’s needs for reliable, affordable and sustainable power and safe, efficient flight. One-third of the world’s power is created by GE and 90% of power transmission utilities worldwide are equipped with our technology. The world’s largest installed base of nearly 38,000 commercial aircraft engines is powered by GE and our partners.
