At instagrid, we're proud to share the latest positive milestone in our ongoing sustainability journey. Our near-term emissions target to reduce our scope 1 & 2 emissions (tCO2e) by at least 42% calculated from 2023 to 2028, has been officially validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), confirming that we're on track in reducing our scope 1 and scope 2 emissions in line with 1.5 degrees Paris Climate Agreement. This achievement reflects our steadfast commitment to environmental responsibility and underscores our dedication to making a positive impact on the world.
A Commitment to Reduction
Our validation by SBTi reaffirms our commitment to reducing emissions that are directly in our control (so-called scope 1 and 2 emissions), including electricity, heat, and vehicle gas purchases for company use. The SBTi recognizes that as a small company, our leverage on emissions that occur in our supply chain (scope 3) is still limited. Nevertheless, SBTi asks companies to commit on Scope 3 emission reduction. We have set an internal target to effectively tackle scope 3 emissions as part of our emission-reduction roadmap. These targets represent significant steps in our goal of creating a better and safer environment, as we actively work to minimise our own carbon footprint.
Science-Based Target initiative
Our partnership with SBTi is instrumental in our sustainability journey. It provides us with a structured framework, ensuring that our emissions reduction targets are grounded in scientific rigor. This approach not only boosts the credibility of our sustainability efforts but also guarantees that our goals are both achievable and effective in driving environmental benefits as we continue to grow our business.
