Our Decade of Action details the measures EMR will take over the next ten years on our journey to become carbon net-zero across our entire value chain.
The strategy establishes a 2030 net-zero target for indirect emissions created by the purchase of electricity or steam – defined as Scope 2 emissions under the Greenhouse Gas Protocol; which supports our 2040 target for direct emissions from all owned and/or controlled sources, and indirect emissions upstream and downstream in the value chain – defined as Scope 1 and Scope 3 emissions respectively.
EMR's net-zero commitment is underpinned by targets set out in four pillars: renewable electricity, energy productivity, movement of people and material handling and movement.
The 2030 targets for each of these pillars include:
All targets apply to our operations worldwide and are aligned to the business' vision of becoming a global leader in sustainable materials.
Our Decade of Action marks the start of an exciting journey for all of us at EMR. We're proud to set out our commitment to tackling climate change and conserving natural resources with a series of ambitious, Group-wide targets.
