GE targets carbon neutrality by 2030


General Electric Co aims to be carbon-neutral at its more than 1,000 factories and other facilities worldwide by 2030, leaving aside emissions from the fossil-fuel burning products that have defined much of the company’s recent history.
Accomplishing its goal will mean eliminating the 2.39 million metric tons of carbon dioxide produced by the company’s operations in 2019 — roughly equivalent to the annual greenhouse gas emissions of more than 516,000 passenger cars.
Absolute cuts to direct emissions and energy use will account for a majority of the
reductions at the maker of gas turbines and jet engines, Chief Executive Officer Larry Culp said in a post on LinkedIn.
