Nordzucker is ready for validation of the Science Based Targets
In 2021, Nordzucker signed the Science Based Targets initiative commitment. Under this commitment, we focus on setting and implementing credible and science-based climate targets. Now, Nordzucker has submitted the SBTs for validation.
The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) defines and promotes measures to reduce emissions, based on findings from climate research. The initiative represents best practice in corporate climate strategy: It calculates how much companies need to reduce their CO2 emissions in order to prevent serious climate changes. Aligning with Science Based Targets helps Nordzucker become more sustainable and increase customer trust and employee loyalty.
Nordzucker joined the initiative in 2021 and calculated greenhouse gas emissions for the entire value chain for the first time in the same year. Based on this, we have developed short-term targets for the next five to ten years, which can now be validated. The commitment to SBTi and the validation process demonstrates that we are meeting our obligations and open to refine our plans based on best scientific guidance and common market practice. Through our GoGreen program, we have already defined and in some cases started to implement concrete measures to achieve the targets.
