Low-carbon economy

We are conscious of the impact of climate change on our stakeholders and business.

We are committed to limiting and reducing the direct and indirect impact of our operations, products and services, and want to act as the catalyst for funding innovation and support the transition towards a low carbon economy.


Our priorities

Net zero operational emissions pathway

  • -30% operational GHG emissions by 2030 (vs 2018)
  • 100% electricity from renewable sources by 2025
  • Compensation for scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions through a balanced portfolio of certified carbon offsets
  • Shift from compensating operational GHG emissions through avoidance credits towards 100% carbon removals by 2030

Products and services

The integration of considerations about the environmental impact of our products and services is key to ensuring sustainability is at the heart of our business strategy.
