Primary Climate Goal
AmerisourceBergen's target annual Scope 1 + 2 emissions for 2022 should be equal to 214 Kt = 5% * 225 Kt, according to the company's stated climate goal.
In order to achieve this goal, AmerisourceBergen would need to reduce its emissions at least by -0.93 Kt per annum over the period from 2022 to 2022:
-0.93 Kt = ( 214 Kt - 215 Kt ) / (2022 - 2021)
This translates into a -0.4% reduction in 2022.
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.
AmerisourceBergen aims to reduce Scope 1 + 2 by 5% by 2022 from a base year 2019
This target is most likely outdated and the company appears to have already achieved it
Science Based Targets initiative In October 2021 SBTi developed and launched world's first net zero standard, providing framework and tools for companies to set science-based net zero targets and limit global temperature rise above pre-industrial levels to 1.5 °C.

GHG emissions and Carbon intensity
Scope 1 + 2 GHG emissions (in tons of CO2e) divided by the company's Revenues (in USDm) for the same period
AmerisourceBergen reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 30 September 2021 at 215 Kt (+107/+99% y-o-y). Carbon intensity also was up at 1 t (+0.4/+67% y-o-y).
AmerisourceBergen's Scope 3 emissions increased to 45 Kt (
The company is committed to reducing Scope 1 + 2 by 5% by 2022 from a base year 2019, which it appears to have already achieved as of 2021. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.
AmerisourceBergen also has a science-based goal that, however, does not appear to explicitly target a company-wide reduction in emissions in absolute terms. AmerisourceBergen commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 54.6% by FY2032 from a FY2019 base year. AmerisourceBergen also commits that 82% of its suppliers by spend, covering purchased goods and services, will have science-based targets by FY2027.
