Colgate-Palmolive's carbon footprint

Colgate-Palmolive reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2021 at 486 Kt (+27/+5.9% y-o-y). Carbon intensity also remained flat at 28 t.

Colgate-Palmolive's Scope 3 emissions declined to 40,539 Kt (-5,182 /-11.3% y-o-y). This is a higher rate of decline than over the period since 4Q'16 (-4.9% CAGR).

The company is committed to reducing Scope 1 + 2 by 30% by 2025 from a base year 2018, which translates into the estimated reduction of -34 Kt per annum over the period of FY2022 - FY2025. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.

Colgate-Palmolive also has a science-based goal that, however, does not appear to explicitly target a company-wide reduction in emissions in absolute terms.
