Science Based Targets
We are currently developing our roadmap and Scope 3 targets and these will be published by 2023 at the latest.
With businesses increasingly aligning their goals around climate mitigation, JCB has signalled its intent to join them in setting these essential targets by committing to the Science Based Targets Initiative Business Ambition for 1.5oC.
The IPCC 2018 and 2021 reports clearly set out the timelines and levels of change needed to limit climate change to 1.5 degrees above present levels, and JCB along with other businesses must find ways to respond.
2030 Targets (vs 2018)
In the meantime we are working on delivery of the following:
- 50% reduction in GHG Emissions across Scope 1 and 2 by 2030
- Scope 3 Target and roadmap in place by 2023
- 75% reduction in single use packaging waste by 2030
- Zero deforestation risk in our supply chain by 2030
- Environmental Sustainability Training delivered to all employees by the end of 2023
Sustainable Development Goals
JCB is also using the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to frame its approach to Climate Change and other Sustainable Development issues.
Whilst it may not be appropriate for JCB to respond to all of the goals at present, our 2030 Targets are very much aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Actions we take in delivering our Strategy and action plans will make valuable contributions to these particular goals as a minimum, but have the potential to reach across the SDG framework.
