Altria Group Inc

"Altria Group Inc's net zero target is to reduce emissions by 55% relative to 2017 emissions by 2030. Net Zero Tracker
This target covers scope 1, scope 2, and scope 3 emissions, but does not cover historical emissions. Net Zero Tracker
The company does not have a publicly available plan detailing steps toward achieving this target. Net Zero Tracker
An interesting fact about Altria's environmental policy is that it does not specify what gases are covered by its target. Net Zero Tracker
In addition, you can check out the net-zero commitments and data for the relevant actors:"

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.

Altria Group Inc belongs to the sector Consumer Staples.
