Climate change is one of the most pressing challenges of our time. The time for action is now and that’s why we have made climate action a top priority within our business.

We believe it is important that we clearly demonstrate the steps we are taking to reduce our environmental footprint and limit our impact on the changing climate. We are making changes within our own business as well as supporting our customers and helping them make more informed decisions.

These actions and progress are captured within our Climate Action Plan (CAP). This maps out our journey to net zero emissions, setting clear science-based targets and adopting global reporting standards.

The commitments we are making are in line with our support of the Paris Agreement and its aim to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius this century. We have further challenged ourselves to reach net zero by 2040, ten years earlier than the target date set by the United Nations.

Recognising that climate science, policy and technology are continuously evolving, we will review and refine our CAP over time to ensure our commitments and targets remain meaningful, relevant and in the best interests of our customers.
