Deceuninck is all set to reach net zero GHG emissions by 2050 with science-based targets, says Bruno Humblet, CEO, Deceuninck group. Deceuninck has decided to set emission reduction targets as per science-based net-zero of the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). However, Deceuninck has joined the business ambition for 1.5°C campaign, which is in line with the Paris Climate Agreement Objective to limit global warming to 1.5°C. In February 2022, Deceuninck committed to the SBTi targets following the inventory of carbon emissions developed in 2021. Deceuninck has already defined the emission reduction roadmap according to the Net-Zero Standard and is all set to submit the targets for validation to the SBTi.
Bruno Humblet adds, “Responding to the SBTi’s call for corporate climate action illustrates our strong commitment to sustainability. The science-based targets provide a framework for us to evaluate every business decision from a climate mitigation point of view. For years, we have been a pioneer in our sector because of our recycling facilities. Recycling will keep playing a key role in our carbon reduction roadmap because it implies less sourcing of raw material –Deceuninck”.
Around 12% of Deceuninck’s carbon footprint is linked to our own operations (scope 1 &2) emissions. It leads to considering and looking at the total value chain and the sourcing of raw materials. Apart from this, recycling will also be important to reach the targets. Deceuninck has committed to reducing absolute Scope 1 & 2 emissions by 60% by 2030. This will require a 75% emission reduction per ton of product produced.
That being said, Deceuninck will exceed the minimum ambition of SBTi (- 42%). Deceuninck has also targeted to reduce Scope 3 emissions by 48% per ton produced by 2030. These targets could only be achieved with maximised recycling of the products. However, Deceuninck is all set to reach net-zero GHG emissions across the value chain by 2050.
