E Ink, the originator, pioneer, and global commercial leader in digital paper technology, today announced they have joined the Climate Pledge, co-founded by Amazon to commit to becoming net-zero carbon by 2040, and are the first display company to join. In December 2021, E Ink announced their pledge to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2040. E Ink plans to be RE 10 by the end of 2022, and would be the first display company to achieve RE 10.
The Climate Pledge (TCP) was founded in 2019 and celebrated 300 signatories on March 14, 2022. Signatories of TCP agree to regular reporting, carbon elimination and credible offsets, all in goal of reaching net zero annual carbon emissions by 2040. Joining The Climate Pledge is an opportunity for companies to be part of a community of leading businesses committed to transformational action to protect the global economy from the disruptive risks associated with climate change. To date there are over 300 signatories across 21 countries and 26 industries.
In addition, E Ink has joined the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi ), a partnership between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) defines and promotes best practice in emissions reductions and net zero targets in line with climate science; provides technical assistance and expert resources to companies who set science-based targets in line with the latest climate science and brings together a team of experts to provide companies with independent assessment and validation of targets.
E Ink has been working for several years towards zero carbon emissions to help mitigate the impact of climate change and to promote sustainable technologies. E Ink has a three-phase plan to reach their commitment of net zero carbon emission by 2040. In the first phases, E Ink aims to achieve 40 percent of renewable energy use by 2025 and 100 percent renewable energy use to implement the RE100 target by 2030.
