C&C reaches emissions targets and vows to be carbon neutral by 2050
C&C has announced that the group’s greenhouse gas reduction targets have been formally validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), in line with a well below 2°C trajectory.
The UK and Ireland drinks manufacturer is committed to reducing emissions by 35% by 2030.
David Forde, C&C Group plc, CEO, commented: “C&C’s emissions reduction targets form part of the group’s wider ESG strategy, which includes a pledge to be a carbon-neutral business by 2050, at the latest. Last year, C&C installed the largest rooftop solar panel farm in Ireland, which is set to reduce its Clonmel manufacturing site’s carbon emissions by 4% each year.”
C&C joins over 4,000 organisations worldwide committed to transitioning to a net-zero economy by setting emissions reduction targets grounded in climate science through the SBTi.
SBTi is a partnership between leading climate agencies, CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), and one of the We Mean Business Coalition commitments.
