2030 has become a key date in the battle against the climate emergency, although also a controversial one – many campaigners think even 10 years is too long to take the urgent action required. Still, it’s a target, and it’s one that BMG’s parent company Bertelsmann is getting behind.

“By 2030, the international media, services, and education company intends to be climate neutral. By then, Bertelsmann aims to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions generated at its locations, by its employees’ mobility, and the manufacture of its own products by 50 percent compared with 2018,” announced the company last week.

Switching to 100% green electricity, installing solar systems, improving the energy efficiency of its offices, and using ‘alternative mobility concepts’ are among the plans. Chairman and CEO Thomas Rabe admitted that due to the diversity of Bertelsmann’s business, some divisions will hit the goal of being ‘climate neutral’ earlier than others.
