In News2 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineMarch 18, 2022

Hyzon Motors has joined the Climate Pledge, which aims to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement 10 years early.

“Hyzon Motors’ singular mission is to decarbonise commercial transport, one of the biggest contributors to global carbon emissions,” the company said.

“By manufacturing hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric trucks and coaches, Hyzon makes zero-emission transport accessible to fleet operators globally. With decarbonisation as our foundation, joining The Climate Pledge is an important reflection of our commitment to not only provide sustainable solutions to others, but also to employ sustainable operations ourselves,” it said.

“As a young company, Hyzon intends to develop its operations with decarbonisation in mind from the beginning.

“We have the opportunity to build systems and processes that prioritise sustainability as we grow,” Hyzon said.

“From manufacturing processes to new facilities, from vehicle life cycle to vendor relations, we commit to leading by example to net zero and are proud to join over 300 other companies in this pursuit.”

So far more than 300 businesses across 51 industries and 29 countries have now joined The Climate Pledge.

Signatories to The Climate Pledge must agree to:

  • Measure and report greenhouse gas emissions on a regular basis.
  • Implement decarbonization strategies in line with the Paris Agreement through real business changes and innovations, including efficiency improvements, renewable energy, materials reductions, and other carbon emission elimination strategies.
  • Neutralise any remaining emissions with additional, quantifiable, real, permanent, and socially beneficial offsets to achieve net-zero annual carbon emissions by 2040.
