Synopsys announced its target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25% by 2024, compared to a 2018 baseline and in addition achieved CarbonNeutral certification across its global operations for the second consecutive year.

"Measuring, reducing, and offsetting our carbon footprint and embracing clean energy are all about leaving a legacy of vitality to future generations," said Synopsys co-CEO Aart de Geus. "While our emissions target is ambitious, our whole team at Synopsys is committed to achieving these goals and expanding our leadership in combatting climate change."

Synopsys' emissions reduction target is an important component of the company's carbon neutrality commitment initiated in 2019. Synopsys has undertaken its carbon neutrality initiative in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol, and the company has again achieved certification as a CarbonNeutral company for 2020. Through the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) and supporting offset projects, Synopsys neutralized the 2020 carbon footprint of its global operations spanning 116 offices and more than 14,500 employees.
