Tackling climate change and protecting the world’s resources

Ambitious science-based targets

We’ve set climate change targets for our operations and financed emissions, validated by the Science Based Targets initiative.

Pathway to net zero

Our Climate Report outlines how we’ll transition towards net zero across our operations and value chain.

Climate neutral operations

Our main focus is on our decarbonisation plan, but we’ll keep running our business on a climate neutral basis on our journey to net zero.

Our path to net zero

We’ve set science-based targets to play our part in meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement

For us, commitments need credibility. For our own operations, we’ve set ambitious near-term science-based targets, as well as renewable electricity and supplier engagement targets, which have been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative.?

We’ve published our action plans for progress

We’re working to transition our business to net zero greenhouse gas emissions, and we monitor our progress closely to help keep us on track. We’re making our properties more efficient; switching our company car fleet to hybrid or electric; buying renewable electricity; reducing our business travel and; supporting our suppliers to do the same. Find out more about our targets and progress in our latest Climate Report 2023.

Managing our transition to net zero

First and foremost, we’re reducing our own carbon footprint and encouraging our value chain to do the same. And we don’t include carbon offsetting in our science-based target goals. Still, supporting the voluntary carbon market means there’s more finance available to drive innovation in climate action projects in emerging and developing economies. That often leads to further benefits - like protecting biodiversity, preventing pollution and creating jobs.

We seek to lead our industry, too

In 2020, we became a founding member of the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative, and we’re members of the Natural Capital Investment Alliance and the Finance for Biodiversity Pledge, which aims to accelerate the development of natural capital as a mainstream investment theme. And we’re currently scoring an A-, leadership level, on the CDP climate questionnaire, for the second year in a row.?

“We apply the same values and standards that we ask of the companies we invest in to how we run our own business. Setting ambitious targets is not only the right thing to do but also helps create efficiencies in our operations and engages our people to be part of the solution.”
