Our net-zero ambition

In 2021, we made a commitment to achieve net-zero greenhouse gases by 2050. As part of this commitment, we will almost halve our emissions intensity by 2025. By 2030, we will cut our emissions intensity by two-thirds. It’s an ambitious plan – but one that helps us play an active role in decarbonizing the global economy.

2. Leading the low-carbon transition

As an active investor, we believe in engagement over divestment; otherwise we just pass the problem onto someone else. We work with our portfolio companies to help them through the transition.
