United Airlines's carbon footprint

United Airlines reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2020 at 15,660 Kt (-18,936 /-54.7% y-o-y). At the same time, carbon intensity skyrocketed to 1,020 t (+220/+28% y-o-y).

United Airlines's Scope 3 emissions plummeted to 4,280 Kt (-3,191 /-42.7% y-o-y). There has been no clear trend lately.

The company is committed to achieving net zero for all Scopes by 2050, which translates into the estimated reduction of -665 Kt per annum over the period of FY2021 - FY2050. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.
