The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) has validated Sodexo’s science-based emissions reduction targets, the facilities management company said June 9.
The long-term target incorporates emissions created throughout Sodexo’s value chain, including its supply chain and client sites: these are known as scopes 1-3.
SBTi, which includes representatives from the United Nations, WWF, environmental performance rating agency CDP and others, selected Sodexo to road-test its target validation criteria and guidance for its new net-zero standard.
Sodexo will reach net-zero emissions once it achieves its long-term science-based target, with any emissions being permanently neutralised. For more information, please see here.
