In line with industry best practices, Galp presents a carbon intensity metric adapted to its value chain and applicable to all business segments. In 2019, our carbon intensity was 77.18 gCO2e/MJ.
The carbon intensity was calculated considering the emissions from its activities, including the scopes 1, 2 and 3 mentioned above, and the energy marketed by the various business segments, namely crude oil, natural gas, liquid fuels, biofuels and electricity.
This metric allows us to respond to the challenge of reducing carbon emissions from Galp's activity within the context of expanding its activities, but also to the challenge of society, which in the future will consume more energy with less carbon.
We seek to reduce our carbon footprint and carbon intensity in its different scopes. In our direct emissions, by promoting energy efficiency in our operations, integrating new processes, and better technologies that minimize atmospheric emissions. In our indirect emissions, we are committed to purchase electricity exclusively from renewable sources in our operations in Portugal, by 2021.
