HAVI Accelerates Its Sustainability Drive By Committing To A 40% Cut In Carbon Emissions By 203024 June 2019
HAVI, a global supply chain management and logistics provider to leading multinational brands, has taken a major step forward in its commitment to combatting global climate change by joining the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). This announcement comes at a time when it is clearer than ever that a firm commitment to embedding a culture of sustainability is fundamental to limiting global warming.
HAVI is one of the first ten companies globally with approved SBTi’s in the Airfreight, Transportation and Logistics sector. More broadly, it joins a relatively small group of other forward-thinking businesses that are taking concrete action against climate change to accelerate the corporate sector’s collective transition to the low-carbon economy.
HAVI has formally submitted and received approval for its commitment to reducing carbon emissions from its operations by 40% per metric ton of goods delivered between 2015 and 2030. The ultimate aim: to help limit the rise in global temperatures to well below 2°C, as per the Paris Agreement.
Moving beyond this milestone, HAVI’s next step will involve working through the climate change program run by the CDP, one of the SBTi’s partners, with the focus on bringing greater transparency to its environmental impact.
Building on Solid Foundations
Signing up to the SBTi elevates HAVI’s longstanding commitment to the principles of sustainable business to a new level. The company is already recognised as a leader on sustainability issues and has a proven track record for fighting global climate change. In collaboration with its partners, it has implemented a significant number of targeted sustainability initiatives over the last decade with measurable success. One such initiative was the successful launch of an internal Efficient & Sustainable Logistics programme, which has made a tangible contribution to reducing HAVI’s CO2 emissions, improving energy efficiency and expanding the use of renewable energy.
