Net Zero Tracker Their interim target is to reduce emissions by 60% relative to 2021 emissions by 2030. Net Zero Tracker An interesting fact about their environmental policy is that they plan to complete a scope 3 inventory by the end of 2022 to support future goal commitments. Net Zero Tracker Their approach to achieving net-zero operations will rely on direct mitigation of global emissions with minimal reliance on carbon offsets. Net Zero Tracker In addition, you can …"
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).

Additional notes: Our approach to achieving net-zero operations will rely on direct mitigation
of global emissions with minimal reliance on carbon offsets.
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
