"Danone's net zero target is set for 2050, as included in their corporate policy. Net Zero Tracker They also have an interim target by 2030 for CO2 reduction in line with 1.5'C SBTI. Net Zero Tracker Their target covers scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions but does not cover historical emissions. Net Zero Tracker An interesting fact about Danone's environmental policy is that they have a publicly available plan that includes measures for all emission scopes covered by the target, and they have committed to annual reporting. Net Zero Tracker They have also set additional targets for methane, although it's …"
Carbon emissions are estimated according to comparable years, intensity and sector

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

Energy and industrial: Multi-national food company, Danone commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 47.2% by FY2030 from a FY2020 base year*. Danone also commits to reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions from purchased goods and services, fuel-and energy-related activities, upstream transportation and distribution, waste generated in operations, downstream transportation and distribution and end of life treatment of sold products 42% within the same timeframe. *The target boundary includes land-related emissions and removals from bioenergy feedstocks. FLAG: Danone further commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 3 FLAG GHG emissions 30.3% by FY2030 from a FY2020 base year**. Finally, Danone commits to no deforestation across its primary deforestation-linked commodities with a target date of FY2025. **Target includes FLAG emissions and removals.
Separate targets for emission reductions and removals
Conditions on use of offset credits
Plans for carbon dioxide removal (CDR)
Yes (nature-based removals e.g. Forestation, soil carbon enhancement)
Additional notes: Agriculture is not just a way to reduce carbon emissions but also actually take CO2 out of the atmosphere by sequestering it in the ground. By transitioning to regenerative agriculture practices, like keeping roots in the soil rather than tilling, our producers can improve soil health, which in turn will help keep carbon in the ground.
Danone is stepping up its support for regenerative agriculture practices. In 2017, we joined the 4 per 1000 initiative, an international platform to catalyze cooperation on soil health and soil carbon sequestration
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
