Science Based Targets initiative validates Zühlke’s net-zero targets


Schlieren ZH – Zühlke’s net-zero targets have been officially validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). This makes Zühlke one of fewer than 50 companies in the software and services sector in Europe whose decarbonization targets have been verified by the SBTi.

The Science Based Targets initiative(SBTi) has officially validated the decarbonization targets of the Schlieren-based innovation service provider Zühlke. According to the media release, this makes Zühlke oneof fewer than 50 companies in the software and services sector in Europe to have such verified net-zero targets. Zühlke is working with customers and partners to contribute to rapid and far-reaching emission reductions in order to halve global emissions by 2030 and achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

The Science Based Targets initiative was developed by leading environmental and climate protection organizations to provide a framework that allows companies to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions on a scientific basis.

“Even though we have the greatest influence through our customers, we are also setting a good example in the sustainable transformation of Zühlke. That’s why we have set ourselves net-zero targets for our own carbon emissions,” says Christoph Bröcker, Head of Sustainability at Zühlke.

The company has drawn up an emissions reduction plan. The measures include switching to 100 percent renewable energy, greening office locations, moving to more sustainable buildings, phasing out company vehicles with combustion engines, purchasing climate-friendly products and services, supporting sustainable travel and promoting more environmentally friendly commuter transportation.

The officially validated targets are short- and long-term measures to achieve the overarching net-zero target, under which Zühlke is committed to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across the entire value chain by 2040. ce/gba
