Meta is part of a complex value chain that touches lives and communities around the globe. Our Responsible Supply Chain (RSC) program strives to empower workers and protect the environment.
Net zero supplier engagement
Business as usual must fundamentally change to move away from what is obviously an unsustainable path. This shift is an enormous undertaking affecting all levels of the supply chain, an undertaking even a company the size of Meta cannot tackle alone. What we can control right now is how we operate and how we collaborate to solve this giant challenge collectively.
We have developed a supplier engagement program to help us reach net zero emissions across our value chain in 2030. We focus on working with vendors to determine their Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, training them to set reduction targets and take actions to achieve those targets.
In 2021, we began working with a pilot group of suppliers to identify greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction opportunities within their operations. For example, one supplier identified nearly 9,000 megawatt hours of potential annual energy savings within its mechanical and electrical facility-level equipment. By the end of 2024, we intend to engage with suppliers representing two-thirds of our annual spend.
Promoting employee wellbeing across our value chain
Our value chain spans the globe, relying on technology, innovation and most importantly, people from all cultures and walks of life.
Our Happiness Series strives to increase worker morale and sense of belonging across our supply chain. After spending time at a supplier factory in China in 2021, we were inspired by the employees’ vast interest in education for personal growth and investment in their families.
We installed a “smart” library that allows more than 11,000 workers to access nearly 2,000 books—for example, books that empower women to take control of their own destiny and books that workers could share with their children.
