NextEra’s plan to eliminate its scope 1 and scope 2 carbon emissions is the most ambitious greenhouse gas reduction plan in the energy sector, according to the Juno Beach, Florida-based company.

Under its “Real Zero” plan, NextEra aims to cut its carbon emissions from 2005 levels by 70% by 2025, 82% by 2030, 87% by 2035 and 94% by 2040 before hitting zero emissions in 2045, without the use of carbon offsets.
