Cutting CO₂e emissions 26% by 2030

In July 2019, the Science Based Targets initiative (SBT) validated our targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The experts at SBT, backed by four non-governmental organizations, found that our projections—targeting a 26% cut in our CO2e emissions by 2030—were consistent with the Paris Agreement’s goal of keeping global temperature rise this century to below two degrees Celsius.
