Yum China's carbon footprint

Yum China reported Total CO2e Emissions - Location-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2021 at 2,318 Kt (+308/+15% y-o-y). Carbon intensity also surged to 243 t (+7.2/+3.1% y-o-y).

Yum China's Scope 3 emissions grew to 8,447 Kt (+1,368/+19% y-o-y).

The company is committed to achieving net zero for Scope 1 + 2 by 2050, which translates into the estimated reduction of -80 Kt per annum over the period of FY2022 - FY2050. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.

Yum China also has a science-based goal that, however, does not appear to explicitly target a company-wide reduction in emissions in absolute terms. Yum China Holdings, Inc. commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 63% by FY2035 from a FY2020 base year. Yum China Holdings, Inc. also commits to reduce scope 3 GHG emissions from purchased goods 66.3% per tonne of goods purchased within the same timeframe.
