Cloud native EDA tools & pre-optimized hardware platforms
Every year businesses face escalating calls to not only join but lead the transition to a low-carbon economy. We hear those calls and we agree. Through our technologies, we’re empowering our customers to design more energy-efficient and powerful chips that enable new applications and product lines, expanding our circle of impact worldwide. We are also working to influence greener practices across our supply chain and the wider technology industry, and through continual internal optimization. We are driving down our own environmental — impacts supporting key environmental advances for people, communities, and the planet while driving business success.
We believe a Smart Future is a sustainable future and we’re working to make it a reality.
See the 2022 ESG Report for our GHG Emissions Summary Table.
We are committed to doing our part in limiting global warming to 1.5° Celsius above pre-industrial levels. We developed new Scope 1 and 2 and Scope 3 GHG emissions reduction targets and submitted these to SBTi for review and validation.
In partnership with Enel Green Power and other like-minded organizations, Synopsys supports the development of renewable wind energy, by purchasing 15MW from Azure Sky Wind and Battery Storage project. In Bangalore, India, we entered into a power purchase agreement (PPA) for up to 400,000 kWhs of wind capacity per month.
At Synopsys, we have a goal to reduce our owned facilities’ impacts, and work to integrate high standards of environmental performance from design through use. Currently, Synopsys occupies 1.3 million square feet of LEED-certified space around the world, 39% of our total square footage.
We continue to progress a multi-year initiative to optimize our global data center footprint, working internally across business units and externally with our vendors to consolidate and decarbonize these operations while continuing to support rapid business growth.
Synopsys achieved CarbonNeutral® company certification across our global operations for the fourth consecutive year through a portfolio of high-quality, verifiable renewable energy certificates (RECs) and offsets. We do not count these RECs and offsets when quantifying progress toward our overall emissions reduction target.
