Scope 1 + 2 GHG emissions (in tons of CO2e) divided by the company's Revenues (in USDm) for the same period
Adyen reported Total CO2e Emissions - Location-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2021 at 2.4 Kt (-0.12 /-4.8% y-o-y). Also positively, carbon intensity decreased to 0.6 t (-0.4 /-40% y-o-y).

Also, carbon neutrality does not include non-CO2 GHG emissions.
