London Stock Exchange
Primary Climate Goal
London Stock Exchange's target annual Scope 1 + 2 emissions for 2030 should be equal to 6.2 Kt = 50% * 12 Kt, according to the company's stated climate goal.
In order to achieve this goal, London Stock Exchange would need to reduce its emissions at least by 0.07 Kt per annum over the period from 2023 to 2030:
0.07 Kt = ( 6.2 Kt - 5.6 Kt ) / (2030 - 2022)
This translates into a +1.2% increase in 2023.
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.
