We are excited to announce our commitment to a target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions across our full value chain by 2050.

As part of the commitment, we have signed the Science Based Targets initiative’s Business Ambition for 1.5°C, aligning our long-term emissions mitigation targets with the ambitious aim of limiting temperature rise in accordance with the Paris Agreement. We've also joined the United Nations Race to Zero Campaign to help build momentum towards a decarbonized economy. These commitments mark a bold step forward in our differentiated approach to sustainability that is helping drive lasting progress at scale and creating long-term value for our business and stakeholders.

We’ve already made great progress to reduce our emissions footprint as highlighted below, but achieving net zero is no easy task.

We'll take an end-to-end approach to reach our net zero emissions target by focusing our efforts across key areas and deliver against its existing targets.

To reach net zero, we’re transforming how we do business. Below are the details of our plan in the Race to Zero:
