To date, more than 4,000 global companies spanning all sectors, including many VMware customers, are committed to science-based targets to reduce greenhouse emissions in their operations and supply chains to help them reach net-zero carbon by 2050. According to Aberdeen’s 2021 paper The Market for Sustainability in the Cloud is Here, 36% of businesses have set zero-carbon goals, and 24% plan to in the next year.” Research has proven that organizations with zero-carbon goals actually improve operations and reduce costs because these goals align with increasing utilization and resource consumption when executing their business strategies.
