Strategic ESG 2030 Targets
In January 2022, we announced an initial set of 2030 ESG targets. Our 2030 ESG targets include reducing our operational greenhouse gas intensity and customer emissions, growing our renewable energy footprint and transitional products increasing economic benefits for Indigenous partners, continuing our focus on safety, and further promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace.
Roadmap to Net-Zero
In addition to our 2030 ESG targets, we announced a commitment to achieve net-zero GHG emissions by 2050. This means that by 2050, we will either emit no GHGs from our operations or through our customers’ use of our products and services, or we will offset residual emissions.
While the declarative nature of our targets and net-zero commitment may be new, the motivation and capabilities to achieve them are not. With operations across the energy value chain, ATCO will be a leader in driving the energy transition towards cleaner fuels and electricity, without sacrificing the safety, reliability, and affordability of energy that our customers rely on.
Achieving net-zero by 2050 is a societal challenge that no individual, business, or government can solve on its own. It will require unprecedented collaboration among all constituents, as well as an informed, pragmatic, and affordable roadmap from policymakers to unlock the necessary scale and pace of private sector investment and expertise.
