Science-based climate action
We’re following science to tackle emissions across our value chain and deliver fully decarbonised energy solutions.
Taking action on climate change is our biggest contribution to society. The core of our business as a renewable energy major is to work with governments, customers, and industries to decarbonise energy systems using our renewable energy solutions – including offshore wind, onshore wind, solar PV, and Power-to-X.
But we aspire to more. To be a true front runner – a catalyst for a greener world and a net-zero economy – we want to deliver fully decarbonised energy solutions. This means tackling all emissions linked to our own operations, energy generation, and supply chain.
We’re working to find, test, pilot, and scale new technologies that will allow us to achieve this – including in sectors like steel, concrete and shipping, which are particularly hard to decarbonise. And we need to do it in collaboration within and across industries.
In this area of our work, the path ahead is clear – but there’s still some way to go. Our overall ambition is to reach net-zero across our entire value chain (scope 1-3) by 2040, a target which has been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
