Tackling climate change from field to you

Our ambitious near-term and net-zero reduction targets reflect our commitment to driving significant reductions in our greenhouse gas emissions. Our holistic approach to addressing climate change spans all aspects of our operations, from forestry, land, and agriculture (FLAG) emissions to transportation, manufacturing, waste, and wastewater (Energy and Industry) emissions.

Forestry, Land, and Agriculture (FLAG)

We have committed to reducing FLAG emissions from owned (scope 1), purchased sources (scope 2), and indirect sources (scope 3) with a near-term reduction target of 36.4% by 2030. Additionally, we have committed to a net-zero reduction target of 90% by 2050 for scope 1 and 2 emissions and 72% reduction for scope 3 emissions by 2050 through collaboration with our stakeholders.

Energy and Industry (E&I)

We have also committed to reducing E&I (scope 1 and 2) emissions by 52.1% by 2030 and have committed to a net-zero reduction target of 90% by 2050. Additionally, we aim to reduce scope 3 emissions by 30% by 2030 and 90% by 2050. This includes emissions from purchased goods and services, capital goods, fuel- and energy-related activities, upstream transportation and distribution, waste generated in operations, business travel, employee commuting, and downstream transportation and distribution.
