"Operators have made good progress in driving down Scope 1 emissions, but it is clear that most still have a long way to go to reach net zero goals across the whole value chain."


Analysys Mason's Environmental KPI tracker provides an overview of energy consumption (Scope 1 and 2), CO2 emissions (Scope 1, 2 and 3), circular economy metrics (waste production and recycling rate), emission factors (tCO2/Kwh) and net zero emission targets (across Scope 1, 2 and 3) for over 50 of the top operators worldwide (by revenue). The data covers a 5-year period from 2018 to 2022.
