Our sustainability mission

By nature, rail infrastructure and Getlink are low-carbon players. Culturally, the Group has always paid close attention to the environmental impact of its activities. This essential part of our identity does not dilute our responsibility ; on the contrary, it commits us to be even more responsible. This is the goal of our new Environment Plan 2025 with strong Climate ambitions : our science-based target reduction of 30 % by 2025 is backed-up by a detailed action plan involving all our stakeholders from our supply chain to our clients. Besides, our updated perception of Getlink resilience about Climate-related risks and opportunities will strengthen our strategy promoting a sustainable mobility.

Emissions

Have an officially validated science-based emissions reduction targets aligned with a 1.5°C scenario (scope 1+2) in line with the SBTi Criteria and Recommendations

Status date: Submitted (05/07/2021)

Data source: Science Based Targets initiative

MRV: Yes*

*Reported target data is checked for completeness. The target year should not have already passed. The target ambition is reported to be consistent with the level of decarbonization required to keep global temperature increase to below 1.5°C. The coverage of the target is also checked to include company-wide operations, i.e. covered emissions in the target base year are at least 95% of the total base year scope 1+2 emissions. Finally, targets are checked to have been officially approved by SBTi.
