Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has made a commitment to reduce carbon emissions in line with the Paris climate agreement.
It has signed up to the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), which encourages companies to commit to making measurable emissions reductions at a level necessary to meet the 2°C warming target.
It is a collaborative initiative between the UN Global Compact, Carbon Disclosure Project, World Resources Institute, World Wide Fund for nature and the We Mean Business coalition.
By signing up to the initiative, SGRE will be developing a measurable, science-based emissions reduction target within 24 months, which will be independently validated by the SBTi.
Markus Tacke, CEO of Siemens Gamesa said: “We look forward to working with other business leaders who have made similar commitments with the aim of finding solutions to climate change and will continue our fellow corporate citizens to make the bold commitments that are necessary to move the world towards a carbon-free future.”
