SanMar’s Emissions Target Approved by SBTi

SanMar Corporation, a supplier of wholesale accessories and apparel, announced the approval of its science-based target to reduce GHG emissions in line with climate science.

In partnership with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), SanMar set a company-wide target to meet the SBTi's temperature pathway to limit warming to 1.5°C and prevent the worst impacts of climate change.

The company’s approved target sets carbon emission reduction goals for both its Scope 1 and 2 and Scope 3 GHG emissions: SanMar commits to reduce Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 50% per pound of product by 2030 from a 2019 base year. SanMar also commits to reduce Scope 3 GHG emissions from purchased goods and services 50% per pound of product within the same timeframe.

"Establishing audacious science-based targets is a landmark moment for SanMar and our industry," said Emily Gigot, Senior Manager of Sustainability at SanMar, in a statement. "Collectively, we must all do our part to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, and this framework provides us with a roadmap to reduce our emissions in line with climate science."

In April 2021, SanMar formally committed to the SBTi and began the process of developing their science-based target and submitting it to SBTi for validation.
