Belgian foam producer Recticel has reinforced its commitment to fighting against climate change by joining the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
This global project is driving actions by enabling organisations to set emission reduction targets that are grounded in climate science.
Recticel has stepped up its efforts to make a lasting, positive impact on the environment by filing a commitment letter to the Science Based Targets initiative.
On international #NetZeroActionDay, Recticel has committed to two targets:
• to become a net-zero emission company on Scopes 1 and 2 by 2030;
• to reach net-zero on Scope 3 by 2050 at the latest.
Commenting on the targets, Recticel said: “Scopes 1, 2 and 3 are a way of categorising the different kinds of GHG emissions a company creates in its own operations, and in its wider value chain. Becoming net-zero means that there will be no impact on the climate resulting from Recticel’s GHG emissions in these scopes.
“The new targets demonstrate Recticel’s environmental ambition and its determination to help galvanise the global momentum urgently needed to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. Recticel looks forward to engaging with all partners in its value chain to join forces and drive progress. Our results against targets will be communicated in the annual report.”
