Nutritics, the market leader in food service technology, has received a validation for its environmental sustainability commitments. The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), which defines and promotes best practice in science-based target setting has verified the Nutritics’ near- and long-term science-based emissions reduction targets, in line with reaching net-zero by 2050.
Responding to the SBTi's urgent call for corporate climate action, Nutritics set net-zero science-based targets in line with a 1.5°C future, aligning with the Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign, committing to:
- Reduce scope 1 and scope 2 Greenhouse Gas emissions by 42% by 2030
- Measure and reduce scope 3 emissions
- Commit to reaching net-zero by 2050 – and as part of this, committing to reducing scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions by 90% by 2050
Stephen Nolan, CEO, Nutritics, said:
“We're proud to achieve SBTi validated targets, reaffirming Nutritics's commitment to sustainability. This milestone underscores our dedication to evidence-based action, and sustainable business remains central to our corporate strategy."
The SBTi defines and promotes best practice in emissions reductions and net-zero targets in line with climate science. The organisation provides technical assistance and expert resources to companies who set science-based targets in line with the latest climate science, by bringing together a team of experts to provide companies with independent assessment and validation of targets. Nolan added “From our own research, we also know how important sustainability is in engaging teams, with 84% of hospitality sector workers say they would stay longer with employers who make a positive environmental and societal impact. This verification demonstrates to our teams too that we are living our values and doing things the right way, operating ethically and with decency."
“The SBTi goal-setting process helps to strengthen and unify our company’s commitment to reduce our environmental impact, while SBTi’s validation of our goals gives our employees, customers, and communities confidence that Nutritics are actively implementing the principles we so strongly advocate. We’ve set ourselves challenging targets, so we’ll need to work extremely hard to meet them but reaching net-zero by 2050 at the latest is a non-negotiable, for us and for the planet.”
