American Express's carbon footprint

American Express reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2020 at 22 Kt (-5.4 /-19.7% y-o-y).

American Express's Scope 3 emissions plunged to 5.5 Kt (-46 /-89.3% y-o-y). There has been no consistent trend in recent years.

The company is committed to achieving net zero for all Scopes by 2035, which translates into the estimated reduction of -1.8 Kt per annum over the period of FY2021 - FY2035. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.
