Pearson's carbon footprint

Pearson reported Total CO2e Emissions - Location-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2021 at 32 Kt (-3.2 /-9.1% y-o-y). Also positively, carbon intensity was down at 7.9 t (-2.4 /-23.3% y-o-y).

Pearson's Scope 3 emissions decreased to 309 Kt (-4.9 /-1.6% y-o-y). The rate of decline has slowed vs. the previous periods (CAGR -9% since 4Q'19).

The company is committed to reducing all Scopes by 50% by 2030 from a base year 2018, which translates into the estimated reduction of -12 Kt per annum over the period of FY2022 - FY2030. This science-based target is aligned with Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.
