Vistatec is pleased to announce that our near-term 1.5 degree target has been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi.)
DUBLIN, IRELAND, December 19, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, Vistatec is pleased to announce that our near-term science-based emissions reduction target has been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi.)
The most recent climate science findings indicate that immediate action must be taken to curb rising temperatures and avoid the most severe impacts of climate change. SBTi defines and promotes best practice in science-based target setting and independently assesses companies’ targets.
Vistatec has committed to a near-term 1.5 degree target to reduce scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 42% by 2030 from a 2021 base year and to measure and reduce scope 3 emissions. This target is consistent with the reductions required to limit global warming to 1.5°C, the most ambitious goal of the Paris Agreement.
Vistatec’s commitment is publicly available here.
“We are pleased to have our near-term target validated by the Science Based Targets initiative,” said Vistatec CEO Thomas Murray. “At Vistatec, we acknowledge the critical need to take action to limit rising temperatures. We understand that we must work together to build a sustainable future, and our science-based target proves our commitment to ensuring our business operations align with our sustainability values.”
To help achieve these ambitious goals, we at Vistatec are committed to:
• Continuously improve how our carbon emissions are measured,
