As an active proponent of responsible chemistry, Stahl is submitting a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction target that is aligned with the most recent guidance provided by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
The company’s SBTi submission includes a specific commitment regarding its Scope 3 upstream emissions, which it aims to reduce by at least 25% over the next 10 years, compared with the base year (2021). This reduction would primarily be achieved by Stahl Holdings BV, Waalwijk/Netherlands, replacing its fossil-based raw materials with lower-carbon alternatives. The target is a major step towards the objective of limiting global warming temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels by 2050, as agreed at the 2015 Paris Climate Accords.
Stahl has already reduced its Scope 1 and 2 (direct) GHG emissions by more than 30%, thanks to operational efficiency gains and by decarbonizing its energy supply. Scope 3 GHG emissions cover all the additional indirect emissions that can occur in the value chain, including those associated with purchased raw materials, packaging, business travel, and transportation. Scope 3 emissions currently represent over 90% of the company’s carbon footprint.
»We are committed to taking the necessary steps together to meet this important ambition for our stakeholders, for our planet, and for society at large.«
Michael Costello, ESG Director, Stahl
