Investing in Value Chain Emissions Reduction Projects

At Meta, our mission is to help people build community and bring the world closer together. Operating sustainably and addressing climate change through bold, meaningful action are paramount to our mission and essential to help the world avoid the worst effects of climate change. Since 2020, we have maintained net zero emissions in our global operations, and have set a goal to reach net zero emissions across our entire value chain in 2030. Our emissions reduction strategy entails three main approaches, in order of priority:

  1. Prioritizing decarbonization in our business decisions
  2. Engaging with our suppliers to reduce their emissions
  3. Investing in value chain emissions reduction projects

Request for Information

The scope of this RFI is specific to our efforts to invest in value chain emissions reduction projects. As such, we are initiating an RFI for value chain emissions reduction projects so that we can directly connect with entities outside of our direct supplier network that are positioned to originate, host, and/or support a pilot/demonstration-scale value chain emissions reduction project or the increased offtake of low-carbon solutions or materials.  This RFI is focused on the hard-to-abate sectors within which our value chain partners operate. Hard-to-abate sectors and activities that are applicable to this RFI include the following:

  • Trucking and lighter duty road transportation of durable goods
  • Maritime shipping
  • Aviation shipping
  • Increasing the production or offtake of low-carbon cement and concrete
  • Increasing the production or offtake of low-carbon copper
  • Increasing the production or offtake of low-carbon steel
  • Abating fluorinated greenhouse gasses in electronics manufacturing
  • Heating and cooling of commercial and industrial facilities
  • Increasing production and offtake of green hydrogen

In order to receive the RFI, we require organizations to have an executed NDA in Meta’s mutual NDA template, which we will send to organizations directly if they wish to proceed. If your organization would like to receive the RFI, please complete this NDA intake request. As soon as the NDA is executed, you will receive the RFI.
