Fuller’s scope 1 and 2 emission targets approved by SBTi

Fuller’s has had its near-tear emissions approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

Fuller’s has committed to reduce scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 42% by 2030 from a 2020 base year. It will also reduce absolute scope 3 emissions by 25% by the end of the decade.

The pub chain’s sustainability director Oliver Rosevear said the approval is a “major milestone” on its journey to net zero.

“In 2021 we announced that we would achieve net zero by 2040 – with a commitment to achieve net zero for operational emissions by 2030.

“Through our Life is Too Good to Waste programme, we have made some real progress on this journey,” Rosevear added.

“To have our initial, near-term emissions reduction target approved by SBTi shows that we have set ambitious but realistic goals.”

As reported by Pub and Bar, Fuller’s committed to source electricity from 100% renewable sources and reduced electricity by 13% and gas by 14% in 2021.

“The latest climate science from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change described by the UN as ‘code red for humanity’ shows it is still possible to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 °C, but we are dangerously close to that threshold,” added Rosevear.

“So it is more important than ever to reduce our emissions and impact on the planet. Through the hard work of our team members and the support provided by SBTi, I feel confident that we will achieve our goals.”
