Companies need to take responsibility for their environmental footprint. This is of increasing importance to all of our stakeholders, especially for our future generations. As a food company, our business is strongly dependent on natural resources and the state of the environment. Our sustainability agenda considers environmental aspects in our business decisions and daily activities, as well as a raised ambition to improve our total planet footprint throughout our value chain.
Science Based Target initiative
The Science Based Targets initiative supports companies to set ambitious emission reduction targets that are consistent with the Paris Agreement. The Paris Agreement’s central aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2° Celsius above pre-industrial levels, and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5° C.
We have set our science-based target of reducing our absolute scopes 1, 2 & 3 emissions by 46 per cent by 2030, with 2019 as our baseline-year. Our ambition behind this target is to keep our footprint from contributing to a global increase in temperature beyond 1.5°C.
Climate Action Programme
The Climate Action Programme is Cloetta’s company-wide effort to work towards our absolute emissions reduction target across all three scopes. With different workstreams, the programme covers departments from manufacturing, innovation, procurement, to marketing. The idea behind this programme is to invigorate and inspire cross-company collaboration to work towards the ambitious science-based target. Each workstream will support each other, as well as looking for inspiration and learnings outside the company, to create creative, realistic, and innovative ways to reach our 46 per cent absolute emissions reduction target by 2030.
