KEMIRA HAS AMBITIOUS CLIMATE TARGET AND COMMITS TO SCIENCE BASED TARGETS INITIATIVE

Kemira has ambitious target for significant reductions in its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by the year 2030 in line with the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi)*. Kemira commits to 50% cut in the emissions from its own operations (scope 1 and 2 emissions**) by 2030, compared to a 2018 baseline. This target is in line with limiting global warming to 1.5°C, which is currently the most ambitious criteria for setting science-based targets.

Kemira’s scope 1&2 emission reduction ambition increases significantly from 30% 2030 target to 50% 2030 target. Furthermore Kemira commits to developing a quantified near-term scope 3 target within the timeframe set by the Science Based Target initiative framework. Kemira will submit these updated targets to be validated by the SBTi.
