2020 Industry Report
on GHG Emissions

 M 

CTA is releasing its second annual 2020
Industry Report on GHG Emissions, that
tracks the industry's progress on climate
change, quantifying greenhouse gas
(GHG) emissions data from member
companies that are publicly disclosing
this information. CTA also is highlighting the collective and individual accomplishments of member companies in
reducing GHG emissions year-over-year
- both globally and in the U.S. This
report is part of CTA's pledge to encourage its members to calculate and publicly
disclose their emissions while also recognizing individual company programs
and initiatives.

Top Findings

We're pleased to report positive results -
including a 7.4% reduction in U.S. GHG
emissions between 2017 and 2018 and a
global decrease of 4.1% during the same
time. These decreasing emissions trends
occurred while the industry experienced
growth of 11.4%, proving that the innovation and efficiencies that drive the
industry forward also help to reduce
GHG emissions.
Just as important are CTA
members' commitments to accurate,

comprehensive and science-based
reporting. CTA members aren't just
making statements about their commitment to combating climate change;
they're doing so through actionable
efforts and real progress that's based on
sound science and in a manner sufficient
to meet the Paris Agreement goals.
Our industry's leadership as innovators, designers, inventors, engineers,
chemists and data analysts is critical in
ensuring the planet's ability to thrive
and support a growing population. We
take this commitment seriously by creating the solutions necessary to address
climate change. By continuing to track
the progress tech companies have made
toward reducing carbon emissions, we
have a better understanding of how the
industry can make a positive impact
around the globe, now and for future
generations. CTA is proud our members
are leading the world down a path of
sustainable business practices that will
benefit consumers and the planet for
generations to come.
