  • In line with its commitment to tackle climate change, Groupe PSA paves its way to carbon neutrality by having its greenhouse gas emission reduction targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) Steering Committee.
  • Validated targets echo the unconditional necessity to limit global warming to 2°C above pre-industrial levels, according to the latest climate science.
  • This external scientific validation confirms the accuracy of Groupe PSA climate strategy and technological choices.

Groupe PSA commits to reduce, by 2034:

  • absolute greenhouse gas emissions from energy consumption of industrial activities (“scope 1 and 2”) by 20% from the 2018 base year.
  • greenhouse gas emissions from use of sold products, considering the whole cycle “well to whell” (“scope 3”) by 37% per vehicle‑kilometer from the 2018 base year.

SBTi approval testifies that PSA Automobiles SA CO2 emissions reduction target is consistent with reductions required to keep warming to 2°C.

For more than 10 years, Groupe PSA has been among the European leaders in reducing CO2 emissions from vehicles. This leadership reflects its choice to focus on efficient and accessible technological solutions, deployed on mass-market vehicles, a prerequisite for a real impact on the environment.

The Science Based Targets initiative is a collaboration between the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The SBTi defines and promotes best practice in science-based target setting and independently assesses companies’ targets.
