Science Based Targets
Essity’s targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions were approved by the Science Based Targets initiative in 2018. In terms of energy consumption within the company and purchased electricity (Scope 1 and 2), Essity has undertaken to reduce greenhouse gas emission by 35% by 2030 compared with 2016. The outcome for 2020 was –11% for Scope 1 and 2. Essity has, moreover, undertaken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the most important purchased raw materials, transport, waste arising from operations and handling at the end of the life cycle for sold products (Scope 3) by 18% by 2030 compared with 2016. The outcome for 2020 was –9% for Scope 3.
Essity has committed to net zero emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050. The net zero emission ambition means Essity has joined the UN Global Compact’s “Business Ambition for 1.5°C” in order to develop targets to achieve net zero emissions throughout the value chain by 2050, in line with Science Based Targets initiative’s (SBTi) criteria.
