Sustainability Report 2021 56 Scope 1 and 2 Emissions The largest part of our Scope 1 and 2 footprint is traceable to the power needs of our factories and labs, which represent our primary opportunity for change. To keep us on track toward our 100% renewable electricity commitments (U.S. by 2022, global by 2030), we are partnering with an energy consultant to develop a renewable energy strategy and expand our renewable energy portfolio. In 2021, Applied Materials’ Scope 1 and 2 emissions totaled 93,272 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO 2 e), a 28% decline from 2020 driven primarily by our new VPPA for wind energy in west Texas. Our Scope 2 (market-based) emissions fell to 49,290 CO 2 e in 2021, a 38% decrease from 2020. However, our location-based emissions rose, primarily due to the opening of new Applied office buildings in California, new manufacturing facilities in Singapore, production expansion in Taiwan and overall production and business growth to meet unprecedented demand in the semiconductor industry. Air emissions from our R&D processes are treated with point-of-use abatement units and facility scrubbers before being discharged to the atmosphere, consistent with local or regional air permit requirements.
