Stahl Sets Scope 3 Goals

Stahl aims to reduce by at least 25% over the next 10 years of the company’s Scope 3 upstream emissions, compared with the base year (2021).

The Netherlands-based chemicals company plans to make the reduction by replacing its fossil-based raw materials with lower carbon alternatives. The target is aligned with the most recent guidance provided by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). 

Stahl’s commitment builds on the company’s existing targets to reduce its emission for Scopes 1 and 2, which were set shortly after the Paris Agreement in 2015. Stahl has since reduced its Scope 1 and 2 (direct) GHG emissions by more than 30%, due to operational efficiency gains and by decarbonizing its energy supply.

Scope 3 GHG emissions cover all the additional indirect emissions that can occur in the value chain, including those associated with purchased raw materials, packaging, business travel, and transportation. Stahl’s Scope 3 emissions currently represent over 90% of its carbon footprint.

“Aligning our GHG targets to the Paris Agreement goals is ambitious and will require continuous technology advances throughout the value chain,” said Stahl CEO Maarten Heijbroek in a statement. “We are already working closely with our upstream partners to reach the 10-year milestone, and we will report on our progress each year in our annual ESG report.”
