Our roadmap to net zero

How we plan to transition to net zero carbon emissions.

We believe we have a unique role to play in facilitating a just transition to net zero and we’re committed to doing our part. Our roadmap helps us deliver on our carbon emission targets while supporting economic growth and prosperity across our markets.

  • Reaching net zero

    We’re committed to net zero carbon emissions in our own operations by 2025 and financing by 2050.

  • Community impact

    Climate change will hit hardest in many of the communities and markets where we operate.

  • A just transition

    An inclusive net-zero economy brings with it a huge opportunity for growth and prosperity.
