ISS emission target reduction receives SBTi validation

Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) validation forms part of the company's overall net zero program.

ISS A/S, parent company of ISS Facility Services, has announced that the company’s near-term emissions reduction target has been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

The recent validation forms part of the company’s wider net zero program and decarbonisation goals with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s (UNFCCC) Paris Agreement.

ISS has set a near-term science-based emissions reduction target that focusses on specific decarbonisation objectives related to its supply chain and service delivery.

This target directs ISS operations across the world to reduce carbon with 46.5 per cent across Scopes 1 and 2 by 2030 and a 27.5 per cent reduction for Scope 3 within the same timeframe.

“With ISS’s extensive reach and significant global footprint, we recognise the urgency of playing an active role in reducing carbon emissions within our own enterprise, for our customers, and throughout our full supply chain,” said Kasper Fangel, ISS CEO.

“This validation forms part of our overall net zero program and marks a significant milestone. It affirms that our environmental sustainability efforts and goals around decarbonization are aligned with best practices. This is a clear indication that ISS is making, and will continue to make, a positive impact by delivering on our emissions reduction program.”
