Somerset-based SHI International recently announced its commitment to the Science Based Targets initiative, or SBTi, a collaboration between global bodies such as the United Nations and the CDP that drives ambitious climate action in the private sector by enabling organizations to set science-based emissions reduction targets.
SHI said this commitment marks the latest milestone in its ambitious Environmental, Social & Governance initiatives that already include efforts such as extensive solar energy production, facilities modifications that reduce energy consumption and waste, large-scale recycling programs and social impact schemes.
“Making a commitment to SBTi that will lead to an approved plan to deliver carbon reduction goals is now a key pillar of our already well-established ESG strategy,” James Prior, chief financial officer at SHI International, said. “Internally, we have a strong focus on our responsibilities to the environment and our communities. Working with the SBTi and other bodies to report transparently on our actions and results demonstrates to customers, partners and staff that we are fully committed to ambitious ESG goals.”
Following its acceptance into the SBTi program, SHI International will work within the organization’s framework to build out a plan to deliver against its net-zero goals.
