Thermo Fisher Scientific Raises GHG Reduction Target
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., a science company, announced a new 2030 GHG emissions reduction target to reduce its Scope 1 and 2 emissions from operations by more than 50% from a 2018 baseline.
The company is on track to achieve its previous 2030 goal of a 30% reduction, ahead of schedule.
The company’s new 50% reduction target fulfills its commitment to the Business Ambition to 1.5˚C campaign and aligns its climate strategy with the Paris Agreement and its reduction targets with the 1.5˚C pathway. It is also pursuing a net zero goal across its value chain by 2050, which includes Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions. The company has submitted its targets to the Science Based Targets initiative for validation.
“Our net-zero goal reflects Thermo Fisher’s commitment to environmental sustainability across the company,” said Marc N. Casper, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher in a statement. “Delivering on interim targets in an accelerated timeframe is a testament to our colleagues and the investments behind our ongoing climate strategy. Our ambitious new 2030 target on the path to net-zero emissions by 2050 reinforces our Mission to enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer.”
