Climate Changes

Braskem's corporate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory is carried out annually, considering 100% of our operations. This inventory is verified by an independent company and covers all categories of Scopes 1, 2 and 3 and is used as a basis for identifying and monitoring GHG emission reduction initiatives.

When compared to the base year (2008), Braskem presents both absolute emissions and emissions intensity, as shown below:

ABSOLUTE EMISSIONS

Note: Braskem Idesa's emissions in Mexico were not included in 2016, since the Complex was at the beginning of its operation and in the stabilization phase. Beginning in 2017, the Complex's emissions will be part of this chart.
