The Science Based Targets initiative provides a clearly-defined pathway for companies to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and reach net zero by 2050. Climate action is an integral part of our business strategy. We have been leading the way for many years. We were among the first few companies to set a validated science-based target in line with the 1.5°C pathway.
As of November 2022, Novozymes is amongst the first group of companies in the world to have committed to SBTi’s new Corporate Net-Zero Standard by having a net-zero by 2050 science-based target verified by the SBTi. While more than 2,000 companies have SBTi commitments, only about 85 companies have a net-zero science-based target verified by SBTi as per October 25, 2022.
Being a manufacturing company, we have significant climate impact in our value chain. That’s why our science-based targets cover scopes 1, 2 and 3. We’re fully committed to a net-zero future across all three scopes. There’s no time to waste.
