Lower carbon future
Chevron issued an updated climate change resilience report on Monday, outlining the company’s ambition to advance its lower carbon future by adopting a net-zero aspiration for equity upstream Scope 1 and 2 emissions expected to be achieved by 2050.
To establishing PCI target
The report, aligned with the Task Force on Climate-Related Disclosures (TCFD), describes how Chevron is incorporating Scope 3 emissions into its greenhouse gas emission targets by establishing a Portfolio Carbon Intensity (PCI) target inclusive of Scope 1 and 2 as well as Scope 3 emissions from the use of its products.
New PCI target
Furthermore, the firm’s new PCI target assists with transparent carbon accounting and company comparison from publicly available data, covering the full value chain, including Scope 3 emissions from the use of products.
