We are committed to minimising our impact on the environment, in line with the COP21 Paris Agreement and the COP26 Glasgow Climate Pact on limiting global warming.
Based on our GHG assessment, we have developed abatement plans and have committed to reduce our emissions in line with a pathway to limit global warming to 1.5°C and reaching net-zero no later than by 2050.
Accordingly, early 2023 we have submitted the following emission reduction targets to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) for validation:
- reduce absolute Scope 1 & 2 GHG emissions 50% by 2030 from a 2019 base year
- reduce absolute Scope 3 GHG emissions 30% by 2030 from a 2019 base year
Over the coming years, we will implement further initiatives to reduce our emissions and work towards our targets.
As part of our overall commitment to minimizing our environmental footprint, we are integrating sustainability into our real estate and facilities management process, as well as implementing environmentally friendly practices in our building selection, office design, operations and services. We are working hard on optimising and improving our office space, implementing more energy-efficient measures, such as LED lights, centralising waste management and making good progress to eliminate single-use plastic in our offices across the world.
Through this initiative, we hope to create sustainable and appealing workspaces for our employees, balancing the demand for space, attractive design, and employee engagement with environmental impact and spend per square meter.
