Strategy

Through strategic actions to combat climate change and protect ecosystems, we are committed to reducing our emissions intensity by 30% by 2030 (compared to 2020).

Looking at emissions across the value chain as a whole, our target is to reach net zero emissions by 2035, 15 years ahead of the Paris Agreement. We are developing a robust decarbonization plan in accordance with internationally recognized methodologies.
