Caring for people’s health and well-being goes hand in hand with caring for the environment. We contribute to creating a sustainable, vibrant and responsible society for generations to come. But we can only do it if we leave as small an environmental footprint as possible and reach net zero emissions. We are getting better all the time and report on our work to reduce our climate impact in our Sustainability Report 2022.
Demant has joined the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), committing us to set targets in line with what climate science deems necessary to limit global warming to 1.5°C. We have set a target to reduce absolute scope 1, 2 and 3 greenhouse gas emissions by 46% by 2030 from a 2019 base year and to reach net-zero emissions across the value chain by 2050. We know that our entire value chain accounts for ~95% of Demant’s footprint and working closely with our suppliers will be key to reaching our targets.
