Primary Climate Goal
This company has not set a company-wide target for an absolute reduction in GHG emissions yet
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
Pearson reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2021 at 8.8 Kt (+1.8/+25% y-o-y). Carbon intensity also grew to 1.9 t (+0.3/+19% y-o-y).
Pearson's Scope 3 emissions was down at 309 Kt (
The company has not set a company-wide target for an absolute reduction in GHG emissions yet.
Pearson also has a science-based goal that, however, does not appear to explicitly target a company-wide reduction in emissions in absolute terms. Pearson commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 50% by 2030 from a 2018 base year. Pearson also commits to reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions from purchased goods and services, upstream and downstream transportation, use and end-of-life of sold products 50% by 2030 from a 2018 base year.The targets covering greenhouse gas emissions from company operations (scopes 1 and 2) are consistent with reductions required to keep warming to 1.5°C
