We support the objectives of the UN Paris Climate Agreement and its goal to keep global temperature rise well below 1.5-degrees Celsius. As an energy technology company with a portfolio of lower-carbon solutions across the energy value chain, our corporate strategy is to lead through the energy transition to a low-carbon future. We have committed ourselves to reduce our Scope 1 and 2 carbon equivalent emissions 50% by 2030 and to achieve net-zero Scope 1 and 2 carbon equivalent emissions by 2050.

We progressed our sustainability efforts from policy to action in 2021.
Building on a strong foundation, we took important steps during the year to advance our sustainability strategy and programs, engage employees, and make significant progress on our most important priorities. Some of the highlights you will see in this report include:
2021 was a year of accelerating our net-zero commitment and sustainability to take energy forward.
The world has changed dramatically since Baker Hughes made its net-zero commitment in 2019. At that time, our roadmap did not include specific plans for a major pandemic, extreme geopolitical volatility, and an accelerated global focus on solving climate change. Despite these challenges, we have continued to take energy forward and make great progress on our sustainability goals.
The People pillar of our sustainability strategy encompasses our relationships with our employees, customers, and communities around the globe. This includes a broad range of social topics including human capital, workforce development, and community engagement. We see these topics as intricately linked and important to advancing our corporate strategy. In this section, we discuss Baker Hughes’ programs to advance DEI, promote a just energy transition, attract, retain, and develop talent, and support the communities where we live and work.
Baker Hughes employees in India set the wheels in motion to combat desertification with an ambitious soil and water conservation project to help farmers and the local community.
They say it takes a village, but when the villages in question are suffering from the impacts of climate change to the extent that farmers’ crops are failing, people are forced to leave their homes to find income in cities.
