In 2023, in line with a 1.5°C trajectory, our near-term science-based emissions reduction targets were officially accepted and validated by SBTi.

  • Scopes 1 and 2

    Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions play a significant role in our sustainability efforts, and we are committed to reducing Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 54.6% by 2032 from a 2019 base year. Among other strategies, our efforts to reduce Scopes 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions, PDF include continued investment in and improvements to energy efficiencies and optimization of our portfolio.

  • Scope 3

    Scope 3 emissions represent those that extend beyond our organizational boundaries and into our broader, associated emissions. We are committed to reducing Scope 3 emissions by 30% by 2032 from a 2021 base year.
