Stonyfield’s Science-Based Target – 30 by 30!
We’re more serious than ever about our commitment to Make Earth Cool Again!
Expanding on our long history on climate action, Stonyfield is proud to announce that we have had our greenhouse gas reduction target accepted by the Science Based Targets initiative.Officially, Stonyfield’s commitment is to reduce absolute Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions 30 % by 2030 from a 2017 base-year. Or in other words, we’re committed to reducing the carbon footprint of our operations and supply chain by 30%, even while we continue to grow! Stonyfield’s goal aligns with the SBTi framework designed to deliver the greenhouse gas reductions required to keep global warming to 2°C, the key objective in the Paris Climate Agreement and what climate science shows is necessary to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.Read more about why we are so proud of this commitment in our blog.
Science Based Targets InitiativeThe Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) is a coalition looking to drive ambitious corporate climate action including CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project), the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). To date, just over 600 companies globally have committed to align their GHG reduction efforts with science via the SBTi and 240 of these companies, and only 50 in North America, have targets validated by SBTi. The validation signals emissions reduction targets that align with what climate science says is necessary to meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.
The Science Based Targets initiative is a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
