Reducing GHG Emissions
Our goal of reducing GHG emissions by 10% per billion standard units of production includes Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions. Scope 1 emissions result from direct usage of thermal energy in our facilities while Scope 2 emissions result mainly from the electricity we purchase.
Through continuous improvements in our operations, equipment and energy efficiency, we surpassed our target as of December 31, 2019. We have also lowered our absolute emissions by 1.1% even as we expanded production by 13.9%, demonstrating our ability to serve customers with greater capacity while still operating responsibly.
