The MOL Group will grasp the environmental needs of customers and other stakeholders and provide solutions, in tandem with developing its environment and emission-free businesses into future core operations, with the aim of contributing to global environmental preservation.
The MOL Group targets reduction of GHG emissions per unit load by 25% by 2030 and by 50% by 2050 compared to fiscal year 2014.
