Clean operations for climate protection

With our mission to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 ("Mission 2050"), we strive for clean operations for climate protection. We have set ourselves the target of reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. We will do this by committing to set an emissions target in line with the Paris Agreement through the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and investing Euros 7 bn to reach it. With this investment, we will increase our use of sustainable aviation fuels, design all new buildings carbon neutral, offer a comprehensive portfolio of green products and electrify 60% of our last-mile delivery. By 2030, we will have more than 80,000 e-vehicles on the road.
