Climate

Transforming the future of energy.

Climate change is a complex challenge that requires all of us to transform our relationship with energy. Our collective future will be shaped by how we respond to a number of environmental challenges. We must work together to help meet the world’s climate goals while doing our part to ensure global energy security and supply of energy.

Our objective

Be a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions company by 2050

Getting to net-zero starts by reducing the emissions footprint of our base business. We’re meeting ambition with action by transforming the emissions footprint of our core business, while also expanding our low emissions businesses and working with our customers, governments and partners to realize our shared climate objectives.

Our greenhouse gas target

By 2030, reduce our annual greenhouse gas emissions by 10 megatonnes across our value chain

Our target encourages new, lower-intensity production as part of our evaluation of new projects and drives real emission reductions in the energy system both within and external to Suncor’s operations.
