LyondellBasell announced its ambition of, and approach to, achieving net zero emissions from global operations by 2050. As an interim step toward 2050, the company also announced a strategy to achieve an absolute reduction of 30 percent in scope 1 and scope 2 emissions by 2030.

These targets are consistent with efforts to support the Paris Agreement's goal of limiting climate change by achieving net zero for global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by mid-century.

"While climate science is extremely complex, there is little doubt greenhouse gases contribute to global warming. The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report is the most recent indicator that firm commitments, collective action and a sense of urgency are needed to help address the global challenge of climate change," said Bob Patel, CEO of LyondellBasell.

"To ensure that LyondellBasell's targets are ambitious and achievable, we have developed a strategy to reduce our emissions footprint by 30 percent by 2030 with the goal of reaching net zero emissions by 2050. We are confident in our approach and committed to doing our part", he added.

In 2019, LyondellBasell announced an initial GHG emissions reduction target of 15 percent per ton of product produced by 2030 (relative to 2015 levels). At the time, the company stated its intention to establish a more ambitious target.

In addition to working to address climate change, the company has prioritized actions to help eliminate plastic waste from the environment, advance a circular economy and support a thriving society.
