UnitedHealth Group's carbon footprint

UnitedHealth Group reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2020 at 173 Kt (+6.1/+3.7% y-o-y). Carbon intensity also remained flat at 0.7 t.

UnitedHealth Group's Scope 3 emissions plummeted to 213 Kt (-216 /-50.3% y-o-y). The time series has been volatile over the last few periods.

The company is committed to reducing Scope 1 + 2 by 3% by 2023 from a base year 2017, which it appears to have already achieved as of 2020. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.
