2022 ESG Report
IMCO's ESG report provides an update on ESG activities and progress over the last year. We remain steadfast in our commitment to consider ESG and climate-related risks and opportunities to achieve our performance objectives while accelerating decarbonization.
In 2022, we made important progress on our ESG and climate journey by:
- Developing our Climate Action Plan, which includes science-based targets to reduce the carbon emissions intensity of its portfolio and a target for investment in climate solutions, both critical components for reaching a net zero world by 2050;
