Our environmental, social, and climate targets
In line with our values, we set ambitious targets to curb Ramboll’s carbon footprint, while improving impacts on our value chain and the environment. Explore our key climate targets and main environmental, social and governance actions and commitments.
As the Partner for Sustainable Change, Ramboll is committed to acting responsibly towards clients, employees, society, and company. This is reflected in our own ambitious targets to reduce carbon emissions in line with the Paris Agreement.
Our climate targets have been approved as being in line with the 1.5°C pathway by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). We will reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 46.2% by 2030 from a 2019 baseline. In addition, we will reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions from business travel by 27.5% in the same timeframe and ensure 80% of our suppliers, as measured by emissions, have science-based targets by 2025.
These ambitions are also reflected in how we work with clients, partners and stakeholders. In all projects, we offer alternative solutions that are more sustainable than the original project brief. Furthermore, in line with our ambition to become the global leader in the green energy transition, Ramboll will exit oil and gas exploration before the end of 2025, redeploying this expertise into renewables. We continue to accelerate the green transition through partnerships, in line with the ambition of our 2022-2025 strategy: The Partner for Sustainable Change.
