"Booking Holdings Inc. has pledged to reach net zero by 2040, with its emissions reduction goals approved by the Science Based Targets initiative in line with a 1.5-degree C pathway. Net Zero Tracker The company has interim targets to reduce scope 1 and 2 emissions by 95% by 2030, and to reduce scope 3 carbon emissions by 50% by 2030, both from a baseline year of 2019. Net Zero Tracker An interesting fact about their environmental policy is that they achieved carbon neutrality in 2020 and transitioned to 100% renewable electricity in 2021. Net Zero Tracker In addition, you can …"

Note: Latest GHG and revenue data (based on tradingview.com) are used to calculate GHG
emissions intensity by sector. The color scale of each bubble depends on the GHG intensity (GHG emissions per 1
million USD revenue).
Sectors follow the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) that organize companies based on their primary
business activities. The 11 sectors are : Information Technology, Health Care, Financials, Consumer
Discretionary, Communication Services, Industrials, Consumer Staples, Energy, Utilities, Real Estate, and

Separate targets for emission reductions and removals
Conditions on use of offset credits
Plans for carbon dioxide removal (CDR)
Additional notes: "We offset emissions that we are unable to reduce through the purchase of credible carbon offset projects from organizations such as Gold Standard and Verified Carbon Standard (VCS). Our primary strategy for offsetting is avoidance and nature-based solutions, and in the near future we will transition to carbon removal projects."
They have separate reduction targets for Scopes 1 and 2, and 3, with plan to use offsets/removals for additional amount to reach net zero. See: "By the end of 2030, we aim to reduce our scope 1 and 2 emissions by 95%." "We set a target reduction of 50% in scope 3 carbon emissions by 2030."
At least 2 years of GHG emissions for scope 1 and 2 are publicly-available and externally-verified
Scope 3 emissions are fully reported and externally-verified
CDP score demonstrates the level of transparent disclosures
Net Zero Commitments by 2050 include an intermediate target and cover all the emissions
Net Zero targets demonstrate a high-level of emergency
Emission reduction targets on a forward-looking basis are ambitious
