Electrolux Professional Group has revealed its target to reduce indirect use phase emissions of sold products by 27.5% by 2030. This target, together with the target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its industrial operations by 70% by 2030, has now been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi*).
“We are committed to leading and transforming our industry towards a more sustainable future. Setting these science-based targets was an important step for our Group´s climate ambition. With the support of the SBTi framework to verify and enhance our progress towards science-based targets, our Group´s climate journey and progress are clear to all stakeholders,” said CEO Alberto Zanata.
Electrolux Professional said its new target to reduce emissions from product use is a response to its customers' wishes to use less energy and have lower emissions from the use of its products. “For our laundry customers, water and detergent savings combined with heat pump dryers can result in much lower emissions. Tests within our own labs as well as certified third-party institutes are underlining the results of our investments for the benefit of the user and the planet.”
*SBTi is a partnership between the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). It defines and promotes best practices in emissions reductions and net-zero targets in line with climate science, which means companies like us can better demonstrate our concrete sustainability commitments to regulators, consumers and investors. https://sciencebasedtargets.org/
