Primary Climate Goal
Republic Services's target annual Scope 1 + 2 emissions for 2030 should be equal to 9,864 Kt = 35% * 15,175 Kt, according to the company's stated climate goal.
In order to achieve this goal, Republic Services would need to reduce its emissions at least by -444 Kt per annum over the period from 2022 to 2030:
-444 Kt = ( 9,864 Kt - 13,864 Kt ) / (2030 - 2021)
This translates into a -3.2% 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.

GHG emissions and Carbon intensity
Republic Services reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2021 at 13,864 Kt (-459 /-3.2% y-o-y). Also positively, carbon intensity plummeted to 1,227 t (-183 /-13% y-o-y).
Republic Services's Scope 3 emissions rose to 3,572 Kt (
The company is committed to reducing Scope 1 + 2 by 35% by 2030 from a base year 2017, which translates into the estimated reduction of -444 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.
