Our business activities have a significant impact on climate and the environment. This is a result not only of the products we sell, but also our business operations. Our goal is to minimise the ecological footprint of our corporate activities by lowering our greenhouse gas emissions and ensuring that the products we offer do not have a detrimental impact on the environment.
As part of our wider commitment to minimise the impact of our products, we will also work with our business partners to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and promote climate protection projects in our supply chains.
Our Goals & Performance (2019)
- We aim to reduce our overall operational GHG emissions by 26% by 2025 (against baseline year 2016).
- We are committed to encouraging our strategic suppliers, which are responsible for 75% of product related emissions, to work towards setting science-based emissions targets by 2024.
