A four-stage roadmap
The plan outlines a four-stage roadmap to decarbonise our operations, supply chain and customer homes, reducing absolute emissions by at least 90%. This target was developed with the Carbon Trust in line with the requirements of the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) Corporate Net Zero Standard and has been submitted for validation by the SBTi, which the business expects to receive during 2023.
The net zero commitment builds on existing strong progress on climate change. We have reduced emissions intensity (scope 1 and 2) by 51% since 2013, and our environment strategy, launched in 2021, includes ambitious targets up to 2030 on climate change, nature and resources.
