Auto Windscreens targets meet SBTi standard

Auto Windscreens’ greenhouse gas emission reduction targets have been approved against the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) net-zero criteria.

The company was the first windscreen provider to publish its action plan last year, which includes deliverables in Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions.

The company’s targets in the near-term are to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 emissions 42% by 2030 from a 2021 base year and to reduce scope 3 emissions 42% within the same timeframe.

In the long-term, its targets are to reduce scope 1 and 2 emissions 100% by 2040 and scope 3 emissions 90%.

Shaun Atton, business support director, said: “Having our targets officially approved makes it feel like Christmas has come early for us. This significant milestone is not just a testament to our commitment to sustainability, but also a reflection of the valuable support and collaboration we have received from our partners and suppliers.

“In the new year, SBTi will be publishing our approved targets on their website, an action that will mark our collective effort towards a more sustainable future. I look forward to continuing our ESG journey – we’ll be raising a toast to our greener future, and encouraging others to embark on this crucial journey in 2024.”
