Guala Closures Emission Targets Approved By SBTi
Guala Closures Group, a manufacturer of aluminum and specialty closures, announced that its 2030 GHG emission targets have been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
This is a further step in the Group’s sustainability plan by committing to science-based targets to reduce absolute Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 44% by 2030 from a 2020 base year.
Guala Closures also commits to reduce Scope 3 GHG emissions from purchased goods and services, and fuel and energy-related activities, by 25% per million manufactured closures, within the same timeframe.
The Group already reduced its GHG emissions in 2021 on Scope 1 and 2 intensities by 40% from the 2016 base year.
“This is a hugely important step along our sustainability strategy pathway,” said Paolo Lavazza, Guala Closures Group Quality and Sustainability Director, in a statement. “To have our near-term target validated gives us, as well as our customers and suppliers, clear evidence we are on the right track. The SBTi is a highly prestigious organization that intends to ensure the claims made by stakeholders about these targets are fully validated by scientific evidence. So, there is no time to waste in our efforts to make deep emission cuts.”
