Solarpack joins SBTi initiative to reduce carbon footprint
Solarpack’s commitment to this initiative is consistent with its ESG Strategic Plan and is aimed at advancing its corporate purpose of accelerating the transition towards clean and affordable energy for all
Solarpack has joined the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to advance in the establishment of greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.
This initiative, aligned with the Paris Agreement, promotes science-based climate change strategies to achieve a global temperature increase of less than 2°C compared to pre-industrial times.
Solarpack's commitment to SBTi is consistent with its ESG Strategic Plan and is aimed at advancing its corporate purpose of accelerating the transition toward clean and affordable energy for all, while contributing to the current global energy challenge.
Specifically, Solarpack is committed to reduce absolute Scope 1 and 2 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 38% by 2030 (from 2021) and to measure and reduce absolute Scope 3 GHG emissions.
The activities carried out by Solarpack have an implicit positive impact on the environment, given the benefit that the generation of energy from renewable sources has on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions at a global level. However, Solarpack intends that its commitment and environmental responsibility is also evidenced through the control and minimisation of environmental impacts in all its activities.
"Environmental protection is a priority for Solarpack, which is why we strive to mitigate climate change and reduce our carbon footprint. The fact that our emission reduction targets are validated by SBTi demonstrates the company's commitment to lead the energy transition towards a circular and decarbonised economy model," says Pablo Burgos, Solarpack’s CEO.
SBTi is a partnership between Carbon Disclosure Project, the UN Global Compact, the World Resources Institute, the Worldwide Fund for Nature and the We Mean Business coalition, of which more than 700 companies worldwide are members.
