The company plans to achieve a 30% GHG emissions reduction by 2030 by converting its electricity supply to fully renewable sources by 2025, and leading significant energy consumption reduction projects across its operations. For its scope 3 target of 20% GHG emissions reduction, Givaudan will engage with its suppliers to reduce the carbon footprint of purchased goods and services. Existing commitments to reduce water usage and waste generation eco-efficiency targets remain unchanged.

Givaudan’s move to new targets follows on a 15% absolute reduction of GHG emissions from 2010 to 2015.
