Commitment to Rigorous Carbon Reduction
Landis+Gyr has signed the commitment letter to join the Science Based Target initiative and set ambitious science-based targets. These efforts follow Landis+Gyr’s purpose to manage energy better for a greener tomorrow and are in line with the Paris Agreement, limiting global warming to well-below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursue efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C.
Simultaneously, Landis+Gyr needs to make sure that it reaches the ambitious goals set for the company for which the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals build the foundation. Landis+Gyr is currently defining its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) targets for the next 3-year cycle to support the goal of becoming 100% carbon neutral by 2030.
As an industry leader in advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), Landis+Gyr plays an important role in mitigating global climate change by developing state-of-the-art technologies and solutions. Smart meters enable meaningful energy efficiency gains, as well as the integration of renewable resources into the supply network, allowing utilities and energy consumers to substantially reduce CO2 emissions. In financial year 2020, Landis+Gyr’s products and technology helped to enable a reduction of 8.5 million tons of direct CO2 emissions through its installed smart meter base, enough to provide electricity to homes in San Diego (USA) for a year.

The company has implemented measures across all internal processes to ensure the effective and practical use of resources for our products and services.
