The Science Based Targets initiative, a global collaboration that provides expert guidance and the resources organizations need to achieve net zero, has validated SITA’s near-term and long-term targets
- Reduce emissions: SITA is targeting near-term greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 46.2% by 2030 and a minimum 90% long-term reduction across all scopes by 2050, working from a 2019 base. While scope 1 emissions are in SITA’s direct control, scope 2 and 3 emissions indirectly form part of the company’s emissions footprint across its value chain.
- Responsible sourcing: SITA will ensure that 50% of its suppliers by spend covering purchased goods and services have science-based targets in place by FY2027 and that new suppliers are selected based on SITA’s required environmental criteria.
- Renewable energy: SITA is committed to transitioning to 80% renewable energy usage by 2025, rising to 100% by 2030. This will be achieved through interventions such as optimizing energy consumption at SITA offices and sourcing renewable energy wherever and whenever possible.
