Financial Times: AFRY – one of Europe’s climate leaders
According to the Financial Times, AFRY is one of the top 300 companies in Europe that achieved the greatest reduction in their greenhouse gas emissions intensity between 2014 and 2019.
The Financial Times listing includes the 300 businesses whose greenhouse gas emission intensity fell the most between the examined years, measuring scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions per revenue. Science shows that the absolute global greenhouse gas emissions must halve every decade and reach net zero by 2050 to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C.
“It is truly great to see that our focus on accelerating the transition to a more sustainable society is getting recognised. To reach the science-based targets in line with the 1.5°C climate ambition, corporate progress plays a crucial part and AFRY aims to lead by example,” says Marie Trogstam, Head of Sustainability at AFRY.
AFRY is a supporting partner to the Exponential Roadmap Initiative and has committed to set science-based targets through the Science Based Targets initiative in line with limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C. We have calculated our CO2 emissions and disclosed the results to CDP for 10 years, receiving score B for 2018-2020 disclosures. In 2020 we set the target to reach net zero CO2 emissions by 2040.
The listing is compiled by research company Statista. Emissions intensity is defined as tonnes of emissions of CO2-equivalent per €1m of revenue.
