Clean operations for climate protection

With our mission to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, we strive for clean operations for climate protection. We are doing this by committing ourselves to a set greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions target by 2030 in line with the Paris Agreement through the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and investing €7 billion 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. Then we will have more than 80,000 e-vehicles on the road.  

Based on SBTi, our goal is to reduce our GHG emissions from 39 million tonnes CO2e to under 29 million by 2030. We plan to achieve our target through the following aspirations:
