PART OF PATHWAY 3 Develop pathways to decarbonize operations


Hankook participated in the SBTi to secure objectivity and evaluate the appropriateness of its 2050 Carbon Neutral Roadmap. Hankook plans to reduce scope 1 & 2 emissions by 46.2% and scope 3 emissions by 27.5% by 2030 from the 2019 baseline, to eventually reach net-zero emissions by 2050. In 2023, Hankook will seek SBTi verification and certification. In addition, the company manages and discloses data on scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions every year and will expand the scope of management to scope 3 emissions in consideration of the importance and capacity to reduce GHG emissions throughout the value chain. It manages scope 3 emissions by selecting nine priority categories out of the 15 outlined in GHG Protocol’s Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Standard.

In 2022, Goodyear used its 2019 GHG emissions footprint as a baseline to identify key hot spots in its value chain that require decarbonization, including purchased goods and services, energy, transport and the use phase. Use phase is an indirect-indirect emissions category for Goodyear. While the use phase is not part of Goodyear’s science-based targets, the company continues to explore use-phase elements that it can leverage to reduce emissions, such as rolling resistance and tire weight.  

For the three hot spots included in its science-based targets, Goodyear identified “hot spot owners” who are responsible for developing strategies to reduce GHG emissions, such as using and developing sustainable feedstocks and low-emissions materials, reducing material consumption, fostering supplier climate commitments, adopting renewable energy sources and optimizing transport mode, miles and density.
