These are challenging targets that we, as an organisation, are committed to at every level. Our net zero milestones are to reach operational net-zero by 2025; operational and business travel net-zero by 2030; and full net-zero by 2035 including our supply chain. We’re on track to meet our near-term targets by 2024. NB; decarbonization will be prioritised and all residual emissions will be neutralized in line with SBTi criteria before reaching net-zero emissions by 2035.
It’s only through continuing to challenge ourselves and setting ambitious targets that we can fulfil our purpose – to create better outcomes for all.
