Søstrene Grene latest retailer to bag SBTi approval

Scandinavian home accessories retailer Søstrene Grene is the latest brand to have its climate targets approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).

The retailer hailed the validation as a “major milestone”.

The SBT has validated Søstrene Grene’s targets to reduce absolute CO2 emissions by 50.4% in scope 1 and 2, and relative emissions in scope 3 by 58.1% by 2030.

The targets are aligned with the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C.

Mikkel Grene, Søstrene Grene CEO and co-owner, said: “The approval of our near-term targets is a major milestone for Søstrene Grene.

“As a company, we have a great responsibility to reduce emissions from our activities and contribute to the Paris Agreement. By setting clear and concrete goals for 2030, we are prioritising the most critical measures that require immediate attention and resources.”

Founded in 1973 by the Grene family, the retailer now has nearly 300 stores in 16 countries and webshops in 14 markets, art of a wide-ranging plan to reboot the UK economy.

Last month, ride -hailing app Freenow got its greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions reduction targets validated by the SBTi.
