Primary Climate Goal
Proximus SA aims to reduce Scope 1 + 2 by 30% by 2025 from a base year 2015
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.
Secondary Climate Goal
Proximus SA's target annual Scope 3 emissions for 2040 should be equal to 384 Kt = 50% * 768 Kt, according to the company's stated climate goal.
In order to achieve this goal, Proximus SA would need to reduce its emissions at least by -2.6 Kt per annum over the period from 2022 to 2040:
-2.6 Kt = ( 384 Kt - 433 Kt ) / (2040 - 2021)
This translates into a -0.6% 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.
Proximus SA aims to reduce Scope 3 by 50% by 2040 from a base year 2014
This target is most likely outdated and the company appears to have already achieved it

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
Proximus SA reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2021 at 27 Kt (-0.8 /-2.9% y-o-y). Also positively, carbon intensity was down at 4 t (-0.3 /-7% y-o-y).
Proximus SA's Scope 3 emissions declined marginally to 433 Kt (
The company is committed to reducing Scope 3 by 50% by 2040 from a base year 2014, which it appears to have already achieved as of 2021. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.
Proximus SA also has a science-based goal that, however, does not appear to explicitly target a company-wide reduction in emissions in absolute terms. Overall Net-Zero Target Proximus commits to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across the value chain by 2040 from a 2020 base year. Near-Term Targets Proximus commits to reduce absolute scope 1 GHG emissions 95% by 2030 from a 2020 base year. Proximus also commits to continue sourcing 100% renewable electricity annually until 2030. Proximus further commits to reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions 60% by 2030 from a 2020 base yea. Long-Term Targets Proximus commits to maintain a minimum of 95% absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emission reductions by 2030 through 2040 from a 2020 base year. Proximus commits to reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions 90% by 2040 from a 2020 base year.
