Rejlers commits to set net-zero climate targets
Climate change is increasingly visible and the latest climate science from the IPCC shows it is still possible to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C, but we are dangerously close to that threshold. Rejlers has committed to set near- and long-term company-wide emission reductions in line with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
Rejlers Group have responded to the SBTi’s urgent call for corporate climate action by committing to align with 1.5°C and net-zero targets. Rejlers Group have yet to submit the net-zero (near- and long-term targets) to the SBTi for approval.
“The world is in a climate crisis. Reducing emissions needs to happen now and leadership means delivering on ambitious targets. We must all do what we can to contribute to mitigating the consequences of climate change. We’re proud to have taken this vital step and our work will now focus on setting our science-based targets with a robust plan to reach them”, says Malin Ljung Eiborn, Sustainability Director, Rejlers Group.
About Science Based Targets initiative:
The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) is a global body enabling businesses to set ambitious emissions reductions targets in line with the latest climate science. It is focused on accelerating companies across the world to halve emissions before 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions before 2050.
The initiative is a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and one of the We Mean Business Coalition commitments. The SBTi defines and promotes best practice in science-based target setting, offers resources and guidance to reduce barriers to adoption, and independently assesses and approves companies’ targets.
