Science Based Targets
Driving Ambitious Corporate Climate Change
We are proud to announce that our near-term science-based emissions reduction target has been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative’s (SBTi).
Being the first guest amenities company to achieve this milestone further solidifies our commitment to reducing Green House Gas emissions 42% by 2030 from a 2021 base year and helping to limit the global temperature rise in 1.5°C through our continuous actions.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report of 2021 clarified that climate change is intensifying and urgent action is needed if we want to avoid its worst impacts. We believe organizations have an essential role in helping achieve transformation at the pace and scale required over the next few years.
At GUAVA, we understand how critical this moment is for our planet, therefore we take sustainability seriously – from creating eco-friendly products with minimal packaging waste to reducing carbon emissions throughout our value chain. Our newly approved near-term target will help us accelerate these efforts even further while also providing customers with assurance about their sustainability commitments when choosing us as their partner for Sustainable Guest Amenities solutions.
Gabriel Tan, CEO of GUAVA, said “In line with our Purpose of Creating Scalable Sustainable Impact Together – we have been committed to reducing our carbon footprint throughout our value chain for many years. Through the SBTi’s Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign, we join the world’s largest and fastest growing group of companies helping to halve global emissions by 2030, aligning with the 2015 Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C.”
This latest achievement demonstrates how serious we are about making meaningful progress toward achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
The SBTi is a partnership between CDP,
the United Nations Global Compact,
World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF),
which aims to mobilize the private sector
to take the lead on urgent climate action.
