12-07-2023 IPCOM has committed to the Science-based Targets initiative (SBTi)
As a leader in distribution and conversion of innovative insulation solutions, we aim to contribute to a world that is sustainable, safe and comfortable to live and work in. Together with our customers and suppliers, we can have a big impact to increase energy efficiency and reduce GHG emissions.
Furthermore, we’re also internally engaged to tackle carbon reduction. Since 2022, all IPCOM group companies participate in an annual carbon footprint assessment. Based on the results of this assessment, we are trying to improve and set “potential based targets” to reduce our carbon footprint.
With the SBT commitment, we want to go one step further. “Science Based Targets” focus on the quantity of emissions that needs to be reduced in order to meet the targets set out in the Paris Climate Agreement, limiting global warming to 1.5°C.
This commitment is only the start of a continuous process. Moving forward we will identify opportunities, set ambitious goals and develop action plans in line with the SBT criteria. Our objectives will be assessed and validated by an independent SBT team and we will report our progress annually.
The SBT initiative is a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and one of the We Mean Business Coalition commitments. The initiative enables businesses to accelerate climate ambitions and actions by setting science based reduction targets.
Targets are considered ‘science-based’ if they are in line with what the latest climate science deems necessary to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement – limiting global warming to well-below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C.
