Goals and Progress

Climate and Energy


  • 100% of our energy globally comes from renewable sources by 2030, with an interim goal of 100% in the U.S. by 2022
  • 50% reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 CO2 emissions by 2030, from 2019 baseline


  • 57% of our global and 80% of our U.S. electricity comes from renewable sources
  • Scope 1 and Scope 2 CO2 emissions declined 28% in 2021, contributing to a 31% total reduction from our 2019 baseline



Climate Change

Combatting a warming climate requires urgent and collective action. We are committed to significantly reducing our impacts by bringing improved efficiency across our global operations, using cleaner, renewable energy and enabling groundbreaking technology innovation.

In 2020-2022, Applied engaged a third-party to conduct a Climate Risk Assessment to identify key physical and transition risks and opportunities in line with the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) recommendations.
