1.5°C science-based target validation

In July 2021 we became only the third major chemical company globally to have a 1.5ºC science-based target validated.

By the end of 2029 we will have reduced our operational (scope 1 and 2) emissions by 46.2% from a 2018 baseline. With the majority of our emissions within our supply chain, we also had our scope 3 target approved by the SBT initiative: to reduce our upstream scope 3 emissions by 13.5% over the same time frame. The focus here is to engage and work with suppliers to reduce emissions associated with sourcing raw materials alongside transportation and distribution of products to our customers. By taking action to achieve these targets within our operations and supply chain we can support our customers and enable them to meet their own GHG emission reduction targets.
