We are committed to having a positive carbon impact on a longer-term journey to net-zero. We will do that by first reducing our emissions* by 50%, and then removing more than the remaining 50% from the atmosphere by 2030.
*Reduce absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 50% against our 2018 baseline, across all scopes, and remove the remainder of CO2e from the atmosphere through credible capture and removal technology, on our journey to net-zero, aligned with the Science Based Targets commitment of our parent company.
MEASUREMENT & REPORTING
We have measured our carbon footprint across scopes 1, 2 and 3 (all direct and indirect emissions from our value chain) since 2017. We have developed an emissions reduction roadmap to meet our ambitious target, and are focusing to reduce high impact areas of our business, such as transportation, packaging, and goods and services. We will publish a detailed account of our emissions annually from 2024.
REDUCTION VERSUS REMOVAL
Our primary ambition will always be to reduce our impacts wherever possible. We will only compensate what we cannot reduce by participating in credible carbon removal programmes on the road to net zero. Our removal roadmap and anticipated solutions will be further clarified in 2024.
SCIENCE-BASED TARGETS INITIATIVE (SBTi)
Aligned with our parent company Beiersdorf’s public climate targets – which have been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) – we have aligned our emissions reduction strategy and goals to limit global warming to 1.5°C in line with the Paris Agreement.
