Univar Solutions Sets Scope 3 Roadmap
Univar Solutions Inc., a global solutions provider to users of specialty ingredients and chemicals, updated its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategy by measuring Scope 3 emissions reduction goals outside of the SBTi scope.
The company will build a roadmap through close collaboration with its supply chain. The Scope 3 roadmap and in-development near-term goal will be published on the Univar Solutions ESG website and updated through the annual ESG report, ensuring credibility and transparency and providing comparisons within the industry.
"As a company with a value where 'We Do What We Say,' this next step in our journey was necessary to better focus our efforts on climate action and emissions reduction in a way that enables us to partner with our suppliers on their emission reduction journeys," said Jen McIntyre, chief people and culture officer and executive ESG lead at Univar Solutions, in a statement. "We look forward to working even closer within industry to progress our collective climate action commitments."
Univar Solutions set a target to achieve net carbon neutrality by 2050.
"With ~95% of our combined emissions being associated with the products and services we source, our ability to reduce our Scope 3 and total emissions is heavily weighted by the actions of our suppliers and our ability to work with others to drive lower emissions," said Liam McCarroll, global sustainability director for Univar Solutions. "Building a roadmap with our supply chain partners will allow us to achieve challenging yet impactful targets as we continue our push to reach net carbon neutrality by 2050."
