The company also commits to reducing by 2030 scope 3 GHG emissions from purchased goods and services, and from the use of sold products by 34.6% per tonne of processed material, both targets measured against 2019 as a base year. These targets are fully aligned with the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
