UnitedHealth Group's carbon footprint

UnitedHealth Group reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2021 at 388 Kt (+215/+124% y-o-y). Carbon intensity also surged to 1.3 t (+0.6/+86% y-o-y).

UnitedHealth Group's Scope 3 emissions declined to 88 Kt (-125 /-58.6% y-o-y). This is a higher rate of decline than over the period since 4Q'19 (-41% CAGR).

The company is committed to reducing Scope 1 + 2 by 3% by 2023 from a base year 2017, which translates into the estimated reduction of -110 Kt per annum over the period of FY2022 - FY2023. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.
