How We'll Reduce It

Incentivize our suppliers to adopt aggressive and comprehensive decarbonization strategies that will result in at least a 20% emissions reduction. We will evaluate decarbonization commitments and progress to plan as part of our procurement process.

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce total air travel intensity by 20% from 2022 levels by Q4 2023.

How We'll Reduce It

Mitigate non-essential air travel and evolve our existing business travel guidelines to help set expectations for when/how our employees should leverage air travel. We will explore incentive programs to further reduce non-essential travel.
