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; and

  • A 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.

To drive progress towards group-wide net-zero carbon emissions by 2040, we have joined three key initiatives from the internationally respected non-profit, The Climate Group. These include RE100 to accelerate the transition to renewables; EV100 to switch to electric vehicles; and EP100 to improve energy productivity across its global portfolio.

Now more than ever, improving environmental performance, while supporting people and businesses to be more sustainable is essential. Committing to decarbonisation is key to driving the green recovery of the global economy in a post-Covid world, creating jobs and driving investment, while delivering on global climate objectives.

Group CEO

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:

  • 100% of operations operating on renewable electricity;

  • The electrification of 100% of cars and light commercial vehicles and 50% of small goods vehicles;

  • 10% energy productivity improvement for total kWh per tonne of material handled.

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.
