In 2022, we continued our progress towards our net zero ambition. Those net CO2 emissions directly under our control (Scope 1) decreased by over 5% to 557.7 kilograms of CO2 per ton of cementitious. This was the key target we set within our sustainability strategy, reflecting the fact that cement contributed to over 80% of our carbon footprint.
