Kuehne + Nagel
Primary Climate Goal
Kuehne + Nagel's target annual all Scopes emissions for 2030 should be equal to 12,368 Kt = 33% * 18,460 Kt, according to the company's stated climate goal.
In order to achieve this goal, Kuehne + Nagel would need to reduce its emissions at least by -485 Kt per annum over the period from 2022 to 2030:
-485 Kt = ( 12,368 Kt - 16,730 Kt ) / (2030 - 2021)
This translates into a -2.9% 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.

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
Kuehne + Nagel reported Total CO2e Emissions - Location-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2021 at 230 Kt (-80 /-25.8% y-o-y). Also positively, carbon intensity plummeted to 6.4 t (-7.6 /-54.3% y-o-y).
Kuehne + Nagel's Scope 3 emissions climbed to 16,500 Kt (
The company is committed to reducing all Scopes by 33% by 2030 from a base year 2019, which translates into the estimated reduction of -485 Kt per annum over the period of FY2022 - FY2030. This science-based target is aligned with Paris Agreement to limit global warming to <2°C above pre-industrial levels.
Kuehne + Nagel aims to achive carbon neutrality across its entire value chain (all Scopes) in 2030. Companies normally become carbon neutral with the help of the acquisition of carbon offsets rather than absolute reductions in their own greenhouse emissions. Also, carbon neutrality does not include non-CO2 GHG emissions.
