msg signs The Climate Pledge

msg signs The Climate Pledge

Back to Newsroom


msg joins The Climate Pledge, a commitment to be net-zero carbon by 2040 - a decade ahead of the Paris Climate Agreement's 2050 target.  The IT and consulting company has even set a firm goal to become carbon neutral as early as 2030. “The Climate Pledge” initiative was co-founded by Amazon and Global Optimism in 2019. Since then, more than 300 companies have signed “The Climate Pledge”.

The topic of sustainability has always played a central role at msg throughout the company’s 40-year history. Sustainability, for example, is also one of msg’s seven values, which express the company’s self-image in terms of how it treats people and the environment. Since 2020, sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) have also been firmly anchored in msg’s corporate strategy – Roadmap 2025. In this Roadmap, CSR forms one of the company’s 13 strategic goals up to 2025.

By signing The Climate Pledge, msg commits to:

  • Measure and report greenhouse gas emissions on a regular basis.
  • Implement decarbonization strategies in line with the Paris Agreement through real business change and innovation, including efficiency improvements, renewable energy, material reductions, and other carbon avoidance strategies.
  • Neutralize all remaining emissions through additional, quantifiable, real, permanent, and socially beneficial offsets to achieve net-zero emissions by 2040 - a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement's 2050 target.

Christiane Rimat, Head of CSR executive department at msg, says: "As the CSR officer of the msg group, I am very proud that msg has joined “The Climate Pledge” and thus set another example in terms of sustainability. In addition, msg is now part of a community that shares knowledge, ideas and best practices. Together, we can take collective action to achieve net-zero carbon emissions.”
