Full transparency on the way to climate neutrality
To support our commitment to climate protection, Nordzucker has joined the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and thereby pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions according to a transparent and traceable target. SBTi aids to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement of 2015 by guiding and recommending companies to set science-based net-zero targets consistent with limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C.
As such, Nordzucker will decrease its emissions from direct operations by 50% by 2030, with the average of years 2017, 2018 and 2019 as a baseline. Nordzucker expects to have the science-based target validated by the SBTi within financial year 2022/23.
Nordzucker has set itself the goal of phasing out coal by latest 2030 and converting all plants to renewable energies by latest 2050, in agreement with the legal requirements in the individual countries. In addition to these climate targets, Nordzucker’s 2030 Sustainability Strategy covers all areas of our direct operations and the value chain under our four pillars: (1) Sustainable Sourcing, including Sustainable Agriculture and Sustainable Procurement, (2) Sustainable Production, (3) Sustainable Products and Packaging and (4) Caring for People.
