Managing our resources: our key impact areas

We are committed to cutting our carbon emissions and we were one of the first companies in our sector to have our carbon reduction target validated by the Science-Based Target initiative (SBTi). This confirms that our goals are consistent with the global effort to keep average temperature increase well below the 2°C threshold agreed at the COP21 climate conference in Paris.
