Sensience’s Promise to a Sustainable Future: Commitment to Setting a Science-Based Target

At Sensience, we believe sustainable business practices are a choice and a responsibility. In line with this ethos, we are thrilled to announce our commitment to set company-wide emissions reductions in line with climate science with the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi). This momentous decision reflects our dedication to combating climate change and charting a course toward a more sustainable future.

Understanding the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi)

The SBTi is more than just a framework; it’s a roadmap for businesses to align their emission reduction targets with the latest climate science. Developed collaboratively by leading organizations like CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the initiative provides a robust methodology for setting ambitious yet achievable goals.

Setting a Near-Term Science-Based Target

We are setting a near-term science-based target as part of our commitment to SBTi. This entails establishing specific, measurable objectives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions within a defined timeframe. By doing so, we are taking proactive steps to address the urgent need for climate action.

Setting a Net Zero Science-Based Target

In addition to our near-term target, we are also pledging to set a net-zero science-based target. This ambitious goal goes beyond emission reduction; it signifies our commitment to achieving a state where our emissions are balanced by removing an equivalent amount from the atmosphere. By striving for net-zero emissions, we are playing our part in mitigating global warming and building a carbon-neutral future.

Why Our Commitment Matters

Our decision to embrace SBTi and set science-based targets is significant for several reasons:

  • Environmental Leadership: By aligning our goals with scientific recommendations, we are positioning ourselves as leaders in environmental sustainability within our industry.
  • Mitigating Climate Change: Our participation in SBTi demonstrates our active contribution to global efforts to combat climate change, safeguarding the planet for future generations.
  • Driving Innovation: Pursuing ambitious sustainability goals fosters innovation within our organization, inspiring us to explore new technologies and strategies that reduce emissions and enhance efficiency.

At Sensience, our commitment to setting science-based targets marks a pivotal moment in our sustainability journey. We embrace ambitious goals and strive for a collective effort to create a greener, more sustainable future for all. Together, we can make a difference.
