Tarkett Sets GHG Goals for 2030
Tarkett’s goals include reductions in GHG emissions from its own activities (Scope 1) and its purchased energy (Scope 2) as well as those arising from the rest of its value chain from suppliers to end customers (Scope 3). The independent organization Science Based Targets (SBTi) has started the evaluation and approval of Tarkett's greenhouse gas reduction targets
The company notes that the building industry can make a major contribution to resource preservation and the mitigation of climate impact since it represents around 40% of global GHG emissions (production, transport & incineration) and 60-70% of total waste.
“Together with our teams, we have set climate targets consistent with the Paris Agreement,” said Arnaud Marquis, Chief Sustainability and Innovation Officer at Tarkett in a statement. “Now we are working closely with the SBTi to assess and approve our targets and to accelerate our contribution to a carbon-neutral world by 2050. These targets are extremely challenging, as only 10% of our emissions are linked to our own manufacturing operations. The rest comes from the use of raw materials, and the treatment and incineration of our products at end-of-use."
