Science Based Targets initiative: Net-Zero Commitment
We actively take the responsibility to work further and faster towards a net-zero carbon future. Internally and externally, we are setting robust emissions reduction targets at the pace and scale required by climate science. By doing so, we join the Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign - the world’s largest and fastest-growing group of companies that are aligning with 1.5°C by helping to halve global emissions by 2030.
This campaign is led by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), in collaboration with CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The SBTi defines and promotes best practices in science-based target setting and independently assesses companies’ targets.
