For most of the regions, if all companies manage to reduce their footprint at the level of the top quartile in their peer group, we will only get a 30% reduction compared to the business-as-usual scenario. If instead all companies were to cut their carbon intensities at the median level of their sector, we would only get a modest 15% reduction. Both are extremely challenging goals to achieve.
