Rolls-Royce Pathway to Net Zero
Jonathan Cooper, Rolls-Royce
At Rolls-Royce, we have a long, proud history as pioneers of the power that enables the modern world to function. Our customers use our products and services in industries such as aviation, shipping, and energy generation.
The climate crisis means the way humans use power must become compatible with net-zero carbon. We believe technology can be a force for good, and that, as the world emerges from the pandemic, sustainable economic growth is possible. For us, the transition to net zero is both a societal imperative and the greatest commercial opportunity of our time.
However, no individual company, sector, or technology has all the answers. That’s why we are forging partnerships across borders, industries, and technologies to seek out—and scale—solutions that can get us to net zero.
One example is our partnership with MathWorks on the development processes for these new solutions. Our control designs and software are built on a family of model-based product lines called ECOSIStem. These enable innovation in our design teams, reduce time to market, and improve software quality. ECOSIStem supports the delivery of novel projects, such as Hybrid Aero Propulsion, Intelligent Engine, and our Small Modular Reactor program, that are part of the journey to a net-zero future.
We have already pledged to reduce emissions from our own operations to net zero by 2030, and to play a leading role in enabling the sectors in which we operate to reach net zero by 2050. We are now laying out our technology pathway and setting clear short-term targets to show how we will achieve those goals.
