Direct Line Group
Primary Climate Goal
Direct Line Group's target annual Scope 1 + 2 emissions for 2050 should be equal to 0 Kt = 0% * 11 Kt, according to the company's stated climate goal.
In order to achieve this goal, Direct Line Group would need to reduce its emissions at least by -0.38 Kt per annum over the period from 2022 to 2050:
-0.38 Kt = ( 0 Kt - 11 Kt ) / (2050 - 2021)
This translates into a -3.4% reduction in 2022.
The projected range shown on the chart is based on the Exerica's algorithm which takes account of both the company's stated goal and its past performance.
Direct Line Group aims to achieve net zero for Scope 1 + 2 by 2050
Science Based Targets initiative In October 2021 SBTi developed and launched world's first net zero standard, providing framework and tools for companies to set science-based net zero targets and limit global temperature rise above pre-industrial levels to 1.5 °C.

GHG emissions and Carbon intensity
Scope 1 + 2 GHG emissions (in tons of CO2e) divided by the company's Revenues (in USDm) for the same period
Direct Line Group reported Total CO2e Emissions - Location-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2021 at 11 Kt (-0.55 /-4.7% y-o-y). Also positively, carbon intensity was down at 2.5 t (-0.3 /-10.7% y-o-y).
Direct Line Group's Scope 3 emissions climbed to 227 Kt (
The company is committed to achieving net zero for Scope 1 + 2 by 2050, which translates into the estimated reduction of -0.38 Kt per annum over the period of FY2022 - FY2050. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.
Direct Line Group also has a science-based goal that, however, does not appear to explicitly target a company-wide reduction in emissions in absolute terms. Headline target: Direct Line Insurance Group plc's portfolio targets cover 75% of its total investment and lending activities by monetary value as of 2019. https://sciencebasedtargets.org/resources/files/Target-language-and-summary_Direct-Line-Insurance-Group-plc.docx.pdf
