Electrolux Group Becomes One of the First Companies to Achieve Climate Target
Electrolux Group, a global appliance company, is three years ahead of its plan to achieve a science-based climate target.
According to the Electrolux Group Sustainability Report 2022, the company reduced its absolute Scope 1 and 2 GHG gas emissions (direct and indirect in operations) by 82% compared to 2015, going beyond its 2025 target of 80%. Scope 3 emissions (when products are in use) also decreased by over 25% compared to 2015, which is in line with the company's reduction target by 2025.
"We were among the first 100 companies to set a global ambitious climate target – and now we are among the very first companies to meet it. As a leader in sustainability, we have a responsibility to show what is possible and this result does just that," said Jonas Samuelson, Electrolux Group CEO, in a statement.
The report features additional highlights: the company ensured that 98% of electricity used in its global operations came from renewable sources, it transported 35% of ocean cargo with more sustainable fuels, and it used innovation to drive sustainability breakthroughs, such as its first vacuum cleaner without paint to reduce chemical use, energy, and material impact.
