Climate and resources

Climate and resources

We are Europe’s third largest carbon dioxide free power generator and a large player in gas. With our strategy we drive the transition to clean energy. In our strategy we focus on reducing carbon dioxide emissions in own operations and transforming our own operations carbon neutral.

Our targets

Climate:

  • Reduction of CO2 emissions (Scope 1 and 2) in European generation by at least 50% by 2030 (compared to base year 2019)
  • Carbon neutral (Scope 1 and 2) in European generation by 2035 at the latest
  • Carbon neutral globally (Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions), in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement, by 2050 at the latest

Biodiversity:

  • Number of major voluntary measures enhancing biodiversity ≥12 in 2021

We support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Climate and resources related targets are clearly visible in the below chart:

Biodiversity

As the world is facing not only a climate crisis but also a global biodiversity crisis, we have set a new biodiversity target, addressing the year 2021. We aim  at conducting a minimum of 12 major voluntary measures that improve the living conditions of species and strengthen populations.
