1 Net-zero means achieving a balance between emissions and removals of GHGs from the atmosphere (ISO IWA 42:2022), Scope 1-3 in our own operations and Scope 1-2 in our banking book. Our commitment is aligned with the 2015 Paris Agreement goal to limit global warming to well below 2, preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to pre-industrial levels. We will step up our efforts to reduce emissions and will neutralize residual emissions at the net-zero target year and any GHG emissions thereafter.
