Climate change and the Science Based Target programme
In the area of climate change, Sofidel has joined the international Science Based Target (SBT) programme, an initiative arising from cooperation between the international non-profit organisation CDP, the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The WWF International initiative, which Sofidel has adhered to since 2008, recognises the SBT initiative and encourages its partners to join; therefore, the two programmes are fully compatible and integrated. In December 2018 Sofidel submitted its goals for analysis, following a review in accordance with the indications of the SBT programme, and, at the time of writing this Report, Sofidel’s proposal is being analysed by the technicians of the World Resources Institute. If approved, these goals would be in line with the forecast to limit the global temperature increase to 2 °C.
