The Business Ambition 1.5°C Campaign is an urgent call-to-action for companies to set emissions reduction targets that are consistent with keeping global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Building upon its commitment to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), Elevate Textiles has announced its commitment to the Business Ambition for 1.5°C Campaign.
Elevate Textiles Inc., Charlotte, NC/USA, and its brands including American & Efird (A&E), Burlington, Cone Denim, Gütermann and Safety Components, continue to affirm and advance its commitment to setting science-based emissions reduction targets across the entire value chain. Elevate has also set a long-term target to reach net-zero emissions by no later than 2050.
is led by the SBTi in partnership with the UN Global Compact and We Mean Business coalition. SBTi is a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The SBTi defines and promotes best practice in science-based target setting and independently assesses companies’ targets.
Elevate joined the SBTi in 2019 and is actively in the process of establishing and validating its SBTi targets.
