Net Zero 2023

Fluor has made the Net Zero 2023 commitment to eliminate operational Scope 1 and Scope 2 absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by the end of 2023. Scope 1 includes emissions produced directly by Fluor offices and fleet vehicles. Scope 2 covers indirect emissions, such as GHG from third-party plants that provide electricity to offices.

Building on Fluor's Legacy

Net Zero 2023 continues Fluor's longstanding dedication to environmental responsibility. Fluor first measured its GHG emissions in 2006 and has made significant progress since then. Among the early milestones was the LEED® (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certification of Fluor's Dallas, Texas, headquarters in 2007. Since that time, numerous Fluor offices have adopted solar panels, light-emitting diode (LED) lighting and energy-efficient appliances as well as other actions.

In 2019, Fluor's Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions totaled approximately 60,000 tCO2e, or metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent. Within this total are emissions from Fluor offices, such as electricity consumption, natural gas and refrigerants and associated fleets. The Net Zero 2023 commitment does not apply to client sites nor does it apply to our fabrication yards or air travel, which are Scope 3 emissions.

Some of the measures that Fluor will use to reach net zero emissions are the continued reduction of energy at offices, the use of alternative energy sources and the Fluor Foundation's support for carbon-offsetting projects. After Fluor has successfully met the net zero target, this achievement will be validated by a third party.

Progress Report

In the fourth quarter, we continued to implement energy reduction initiatives at offices to reduce our emissions and began developing Fluor University® training on energy attribute certificates and offsets. We announced our investment in a carbon offset project that protects peatlands in Indonesia – Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve. In addition, we surveyed employees to identify successes and opportunities for improvement.
