CLIMATE GOALS

Scapa announces its commitment to the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

The Science Based Targets Initiative is a unique initiative driven by the World Resource Institute, the World Wildlife Fund, the Carbon Disclosure Project and the UN Global Compact. It’s goal is to support participating companies in determining how much they must cut their greenhouse gas emissions to prevent the worst impact of climate change.  

Specifically, the SBTi encourages companies to set emission targets that allow the achievement of the global climate agreement signed in Paris 2015 which aims for keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius. 

In order to set realistic targets, Scapa has partnered up with Normative to identify their direct and indirect emissions throughout their value chain. As a resultScapa commits to the following targets 

Firstly, to reduce absolute scope 1* greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent until 2030 and secondly, to reduce absolute scope 3** greenhouse gas emissions by 58 percent until 2030 (for both targets, 2018 serves as base year). Scapa also commits to continue annually sourcing 100 percent renewable electricity through 2030. 

Kristian Rönn, founder and CEO of Normative: ”We need to realise that climate change is a solvable issue. The best science tells us that to reduce the risk from climate change, we need to be working together to stabilise temperature rise to a maximum of 1.5°C. We can reach this goal if more companies could take the same level of responsibility and commitment as Scapa now has.” 

Martin Starkman, CEO of Beds by Scapa AB: “Sustainability is one of Scapa’s three focus areas, besides Coworkers and Product. By making sustainability an integral part of our business and working closely with our suppliers, we strive to ensure more carbon-efficient products. ” 

Peter Conradsson, Managing Director of Scapa Inter AB: “Tackling climate change requires ambitious action from the corporate sector. Our Science Based Targets prove our commitment to building a sustainable economy, by doing not what is easy but what is necessary.” 

 

 

* Scope 1 emissions are direct emissions from owned or controlled sources. In Scapa’s case this is their vehicle fleet. 

** Scope 3 emissions are all indirect emissions (that are not already included in Scope 2) that occur in the value chain of the reporting company, including both upstream and downstream emissions.
