Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) approves Keenan Recycling emissions reduction target

Keenan Recycling steps up to the challenge with Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi)

We understand the critical role we play in protecting our planet. That’s why we’re thrilled to share that the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) has approved our near-term science-based emissions reduction target. This signifies our dedication to taking immediate action to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.

This target was approved using a streamlined target validation route exclusive to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Keenan Recycling commits to reduce scope 1 and scope 2 GHG emissions by at least 42% by 2030 from a 2021 base year, and to measure and reduce its scope 3 emissions.

What is the SBTi?

The SBTi is a leading organisation that helps companies set clear and achievable goals to combat climate change. Their science-based targets align with the latest climate science and are crucial for limiting global warming to 1.5°C, a critical threshold to avoid the most catastrophic effects of climate change.

What does this mean for Keenan Recycling?

Through the SBTi, we’ve established an approved near-term science-based target for reducing our GHG emissions. Near-term targets outline the amount by which organisations will reduce their emissions, usually over the next 5-10 years. These targets help galvanise the action required for significant emission reductions to be achieved by 2030.

Why science-based targets?

Science-based targets offer a clear and credible framework for climate action. By setting ambitious yet achievable goals, we ensure our efforts contribute meaningfully to combating climate change. This commitment demonstrates our leadership in the waste management industry and inspires others to take similar action.

Staying transparent and accountable

We are committed to transparency throughout this process. We’ll continue to share updates on our progress towards achieving our SBTi near-term target, ensuring accountability to our stakeholders and the planet.

Together for a sustainable future

By partnering with the SBTi, Keenan Recycling is taking a significant step towards a more sustainable future. This is just the beginning of our journey, and we’re committed to continuously improving our environmental performance.
