Primary Climate Goal
Whitbread's target annual Scope 1 + 2 emissions for 2040 should be equal to 0 Kt = 0% * 51 Kt, according to the company's stated climate goal.
In order to achieve this goal, Whitbread would need to reduce its emissions at least by -2.7 Kt per annum over the period from 2022 to 2040:
-2.7 Kt = ( 0 Kt - 51 Kt ) / (2040 - 2021)
This translates into a -5.3% reduction in 2022.
The projected range shown on the chart is based on the Exerica's algorithm which takes account of both the company's stated goal and its past performance.
Whitbread aims to achieve net zero for Scope 1 + 2 by 2040

GHG emissions and Carbon intensity
Scope 1 + 2 GHG emissions (in tons of CO2e) divided by the company's Revenues (in USDm) for the same period
Whitbread reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 March 2021 at 51 Kt (-26 /-33.9% y-o-y). At the same time, carbon intensity surged to 70 t (+41/+144% y-o-y).
No public disclosure of Scope 3 emissions has been found for Whitbread at the moment.
The company is committed to achieving net zero for Scope 1 + 2 by 2040, which translates into the estimated reduction of -2.7 Kt per annum over the period of FY2022 - FY2040. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.
