American Water Works Co
Primary Climate Goal
American Water Works Co's target annual Scope 1 + 2 emissions for 2025 should be equal to 512 Kt = 40% * 854 Kt, according to the company's stated climate goal.
In order to achieve this goal, American Water Works Co would need to reduce its emissions at least by -6.6 Kt per annum over the period from 2021 to 2025:
-6.6 Kt = ( 512 Kt - 545 Kt ) / (2025 - 2020)
This translates into a -1.2% reduction in 2021.
The projected range shown on the chart is based on the Exerica's algorithm which takes account of both the company's stated goal and its past performance.

American Water Works Co reported Total CO2e Emissions - Location-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2020 at 545 Kt (-33 /-5.7% y-o-y). Also positively, carbon intensity tumbled to 144 t (-16 /-9.9% y-o-y).
No public disclosure of Scope 3 emissions has been found for American Water Works Co at the moment.
The company is committed to reducing Scope 1 + 2 by 40% by 2025 from a base year 2007, which translates into the estimated reduction of -6.6 Kt per annum over the period of FY2021 - FY2025. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.
