Sector Benchmark

Note: Latest GHG and revenue data (based on tradingview.com) are used to calculate GHG emissions intensity by sector. The color scale of each bubble depends on the GHG intensity (GHG emissions per 1 million USD revenue). Sectors follow the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) that organize companies based on their primary business activities. The 11 sectors are : Information Technology, Health Care, Financials, Consumer Discretionary, Communication Services, Industrials, Consumer Staples, Energy, Utilities, Real Estate, and Materials.

AbbVie Inc. belongs to the sector Health Care.

Science-based Targets (SBTI)

Date Published / Updated :01/04/2023

Near-term Long-Term Net Zero Standard
Targets Set : 1.5°C by 2030 No target No
AbbVie Inc. is a member of the Business Ambition for 1.5 campaign (link here )

AbbVie commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 42.0% by 2030 from a 2021 base year*. AbbVie also commits to increase active sourcing of renewable electricity from 29.5% in 2021 to 100.0% by 2030. AbbVie further commits that 79.1% of its suppliers by emissions covering purchased goods and services, capital goods, and upstream transportation and distribution, will have science-based targets by 2027. * The target boundary includes land-related emissions and removals from bioenergy feedstocks.
