Actona Group’s CO₂ emissions reduction targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative
Actona Group has set ambitious climate goals across the entire organisation in alignment with a set of standards provided by the internationally recognised Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
SBTi has a rigorous target-setting and validation process and having undergone that procedure, instills confidence in our goals and commitment. Our goals align with the latest science and the 2015 Paris Agreement’s commitment to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
This is an important step for us in our efforts to be part of the solution to climate change. We recognise the urgent need for action and are committed to doing our part to reduce emissions and limit the impact of climate change.
The SBTi has approved Actona Group’s near-term science-based emissions reduction target. Actona Group has committed to:
Reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions 42% by FY2030 from a FY2021 base year*.
Reduce absolute scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions from purchased goods and services, and end-of-life treatment of sold products 42% within the same timeframe.
*The target boundary includes land-related emissions and removals from bioenergy feedstocks.
We are excited to join the growing number of businesses taking action on climate change and we hope that our commitment inspires others to take action as well.
We acknowledge that the latest science may change, and thereby our target language might be adjusted over time, but our ambition to reduce our absolute greenhouse gas emission will stay the same.
