We monitor resource and regulatory trends and are committed to setting focused targets for our key resources and emissions. Our global environmental programs and practices have been developed to identify, manage and control activities that have an environmental impact. Over the years, Xilinx has continued to make investments in improving EHS at our facilities. We’ve cut material waste in manufacturing, reduced our carbon footprint, and make a point to choose locally sourced and sustainable materials for our buildings, wherever possible.
In late 2016, we began rapidly increasing our use of renewable energy, and by the end of 2020, carbon-free energy sources have supplied 53% of our total energy needs at headquarters in San Jose, California. We are currently evaluating market-based renewable energy options for alignment to the 1.5-degree Celsius warming scenario which will aid in meeting our 25% CO2 reduction goal by the end of CY2025, and put us on track for 50% reduction by 2030.
