Caterpillar's carbon footprint

Caterpillar reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2020 at 1,461 Kt (-313 /-17.6% y-o-y). At the same time, carbon intensity was up at 35 t (+2/+6.1% y-o-y).

No public disclosure of Scope 3 emissions has been found for Caterpillar at the moment.

The company is committed to reducing Scope 1 + 2 by 30% by 2030 from a base year 2018, which it appears to have already achieved as of 2020. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.
