Science Based Targets initiative
In 2016, we became one of the first companies in the world – and just the fourth in Germany – to commit to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Recently, we went even further with commitments validated by the SBTi that aligned with the most ambitious goals of the Paris climate accord: limiting global temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. The targets are a major step towards all ADVA production processes becoming carbon neutral.
Our three absolute emissions-reduction targets are:
- 67% on car-fleet emissions
- 67% on purchased-electricity emissions
- 3% on sold-products use-phase emissions
With a runtime of 16 years, these targets will determine our sustainability strategy over this period.
