Ambitious greenhouse gas reduction targets approved by SBTi
The SBTi defines and promotes best practices in setting science-based targets and evaluates companies' emissions reduction goals. Sponsors of the initiative include the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), the UN Global Compact, the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The international Eckes-Granini Group has joined the initiative to contribute to limiting global warming to 1.5°C by setting ambitious climate protection targets. Following an intensive review, the SBTi today approved that Eckes-Granini's greenhouse gas reduction targets are consistent with levels required to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Emissions reduction targets: Fighting for climate protection in many places
Eckes-Granini aims to reduce direct greenhouse gas emissions from its business activities (Scopes 1 and 2) 95% by 2030 compared to the 2019 baseline. Furthermore, Eckes-Granini has set itself the goal of reducing indirect greenhouse gas emissions in the value chain (Scope 3), which are caused by corporate activities but are often not under the company's control (e.g., at suppliers and service providers), 50% per liter of product by 2030 compared to the 2019 baseline.
