Thermo Fisher Scientific

"Thermo Fisher Scientific has committed to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Net Zero Tracker
This target covers carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, and includes scope 1 and scope 2 emissions. Net Zero Tracker
The company has also set an interim target to reduce its emissions by 30% relative to 2020 emissions by 2030. Net Zero Tracker
An interesting fact about Thermo Fisher Scientific's environmental policy is that it does not plan to use carbon removal within its target boundary. Net Zero Tracker
In addition, you can check out the net-zero commitments and data for the relevant actors:"

Sector Benchmark

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 Materials.

Thermo Fisher Scientific belongs to the sector Health Care.
