  • CF’s scope 3 disclosure is based on estimates from internal data combined with appropriate emission factors.
  • Non-included categories have been reviewed and are negligible.  
  • Company will continue to improve the accuracy of its Scope 3 estimates

Scope 3 Emissions Goal

CF commits to reduce its Scope 3 emissions by 10% by 2030

CF supports the development of a science-based fertilizer sectoral decarbonization approach and will update its goals to align with science-based targets.

Company will continue to improve the accuracy of its Scope 3 estimates and will include Scope 3 emission disclosures in future sustainability reports.
