Alphabet aims to achieve net zero for all Scopes by 2030

Alphabet's carbon footprint

Alphabet reported gross GHG emissions (Scope 1 + 2 before carbon offsets) for the twelve months ending 31 December 2020 at 950 Kt (+89/+10% y-o-y). At the sime time, carbon intensity declined to 5.2 t (-0.1 /-1.9% y-o-y).

Alphabet's Scope 3 emissions declined to 9,376 Kt (-2,293 /-19.7% y-o-y). This is a higher rate of decline than over the period since 4Q'18 (-10.1% CAGR).

The company is committed to achieving net zero for all Scopes by 2030, which translates into the estimated reduction of -1,033 Kt per annum over the period of FY2021 - FY2030. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.

Alphabet achieved carbon neutrality across its operations (Scope 1 + 2) in 2007. 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.
