Greenyard's carbon reduction targets have been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) in 2022. SBTi is an independent partnership between: UN Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI), CDP and WWF. The SBTi has assessed Greenyard's carbon commitments, the methodology and target setting, against the Paris Climate Agreement - which aims to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
Greenyard has set a goal of reducing direct (scope 1 & 2) emissions by 70% by 2030 compared to 2020.
For indirect emissions (scope 3), Greenyard wants to encourage its largest suppliers to also commit to science-based climate targets. This approach should cover 70% of the purchase value of the goods and services by 2026, including the related inbound and outbound transport and distribution movements.
Greenyard’s Sustainability Report includes an example of our community outreach efforts and how they help meet challenges in the food industry.
