N Brown net zero plans receive SBTi approval

N Brown Group, the owner of Jacamo and Simply B, has had its targets to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).

The fashion and homeware retailer has committed to reducing scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions from its operations by 46% by 2030, from a 2021 base year.

Approval from SBTi means the targets have been set in line with the latest climate science under the Paris Climate Agreement.

Scopes 1 and 2 cover emissions generated by N Brown’s own operations, such as electricity at its distribution centres and head office. Scope 3 refers to emissions in N Brown’s supply chain, such as energy usage by its product-manufacturing partners.

These targets are part of N Brown’s wider sustainability strategy, SUSTAIN, which includes the group’s ambition to achieve net zero emissions by 2040 under the British Retail Consortium’s (‘BRC’) Climate Action Road map.

Sarah Welsh, CEO of retail at N Brown, said: “We believe online fashion should be sustainable, which is why our sustainability strategy is at the core of our business strategy.

“We’re committed to our key long-term goals of ensuring that all our own brand products are sustainable by 2030 through our partnership with Textiles 2030, and to becoming net zero by 2040 through the BRC’s Climate Action Roadmap.”

Earlier this year. the SBTi validated Trainline’s targets to reach net zero by 2040.
