Goals and Progress

Energy and Emissions


  • 100% of our energy globally comes from renewable sources by 2030, with an interim goal of 100% in the U.S. by 2022
  • 50% reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 CO2 emissions by 2030, from 2019 baseline


  • 27% of our global and 60% of our U.S. energy comes from renewable sources
  • Scope 1 and Scope 2 CO2 emissions increased 5% from 2019 baseline due to unprecedented demand for semiconductors. We are working to address this impact.



Climate Change

At Applied Materials, we believe we have a responsibility to operate in a way that makes the world a better place.

The impacts of climate change, including wildfires, floods, and extreme weather events, are increasingly disrupting lives and businesses. Combatting a warming climate requires urgent and collective action. We are committed to significantly reducing our impacts by bringing improved efficiency across our global operations, using cleaner, renewable energy, and enabling groundbreaking technology innovation.
