- Engineering services company Wood Group said it was targeting a 40% reduction in its carbon emissions by 2030.

The company said it had to set a 'science-based target' to reduce its scope one and two greenhouse gas emissions over that time period, using 2019 figures as a baseline.

It added that it would formally submit its target to the Science Based Targets Initiative, a globally recognised body for corporate climate action.
