At URSA we recognize that climate change, including shifts in temperature, precipitation and more frequent and severe weather events will increasingly impact the building industry and our business. To help manage these risks we are committed to playing our part in helping the sector meet the goals of the Paris Agreement and reach carbon neutrality by 2050. To drive this effort, we have set an ambitious target to reduce our scope 1 and 2 CO2 emissions intensity by 35% (from a 2018 baseline) by 2030.
