AES's carbon footprint

AES reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2020 at 43,217 Kt (-2,722 /-5.9% y-o-y). Also positively, carbon intensity declined marginally to 4,474 t (-35 /-0.8% y-o-y).

AES's Scope 3 emissions declined to 7,269 Kt (-2,704 /-27.1% y-o-y). The decline accelerated compared to the CAGR of -14.9% since 4Q'17.

The company is committed to achieving net zero for Scope 1 + 2 by 2040, which translates into the estimated reduction of -2,161 Kt per annum over the period of FY2021 - FY2040. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.

Also, the company commits to achieving carbon neutrality for all Scopes by 2050, which translates into the estimated reduction of -1,683 Kt per annum over the period of FY2021 - FY2050. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.

AES aims to achive carbon neutrality across its entire value chain (all Scopes) in 2050. Companies normally become carbon neutral with the help of the acquisition of carbon offsets rather than absolute reductions in their own greenhouse emissions. Also, carbon neutrality does not include non-CO2 GHG emissions.
