Find out how we are enabling a fair and affordable transition to a clean energy economy.
We are embracing our role at the heart of the energy system and understand the critical part we play in tackling climate change, one of the defining challenges of our generation. The decisions we take now will influence the future of our planet and life on earth.
We know we must make significant changes to curb emissions, and we have already taken important steps to do so. Since 1990, we’ve reduced direct emissions by 68% (as at March 2019). That’s well in excess of our interim target, which was 45% by 2020. In 2019 we committed to reducing Scope 1 and 2 emissions to Net Zero by 2050, and we will be laying out our pathway to achieve these reductions. There’s much more we can and will do.
The markets in which we operate have set far-reaching carbon reduction targets, and further legislative measures are likely to follow. While the targets are challenging, we welcome the opportunity they present.
