Navistar Submits SBTi Targets for Validation
Navistar, which operates as the owner of International-branded trucks and diesel engines, plans to submit its science-based targets for validation by the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
In 2022, Navistar measured its carbon footprint to gauge its 2021 emissions. This includes emissions from its direct operations, the company’s activities occurring upstream and downstream, the production of parts used to develop Navistar’s vehicles, and the estimated lifetime vehicle use of its customers.
As part of the target-setting, Navistar will define the exact period of the target in consultation with SBTi through the validation process. The near-term target will guide Navistar in decarbonization efforts and show the reductions necessary to achieve Paris Agreement objectives.
"In measuring our 2021 emissions, we found Navistar's total footprint was approximately 61 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent," said President and CEO, Mathias Carlbaum, in a statement. "Submitting decarbonization targets to SBTi will aid in keeping us on track with our goals to continually push our corporate and manufacturing operations toward more sustainable benchmarks."
Additionally, the company is driving decarbonization in the transportation sector through the development of the IC Bus® Electric CE Series, which are all-electric buses. It will also introduce an integrated powertrain to the North American market, which offers up to a 15% gain in fuel efficiency, marking a leap forward toward carbon-neutral transport.
Ultimately, Navistar is focused on speeding up the impact of sustainable mobility and continuing on a path toward a zero-emissions future.
