“We have set ourselves some ambitious goals, but greenwashing is not on SIG’s agenda. That’s why we are proud of being a part of the Science Based Targets Initiative.”
– Michael Hecker, Head
Group Environment, Health & Safety at SIAt the Climate Summit 2015 in Paris, more than 180 countries agreed on the goal of slowing the process of global warming caused by greenhouse gases, or the “2°C goal”.
The Science Based Targets Initiative helps large and small companies to set the right milestones and standards to get there. It also supports SIG by comparing and assessing science-based, acknowledged and relevant values against the company’s own targets.
The Science Based Targets initiative is a partnership between CDP, UN Global Compact, WRI and WWF, which helps companies determine how much they must cut emissions to prevent the worst impacts of climate change. The aim is that by 2018, science-based target setting will become standard business practice and corporations will play a major role in closing the emissions gap left by country commitments.
