Treatt acts on climate change with near-term science-based target


We are proud to announce our commitment to reduce our carbon emissions as part of our sustainability strategy.

Katie Severn, Global Sustainability Manager at Treatt, said: “As a responsible business, we are committed to acting in response to the pressing scientific evidence surrounding the climate crisis. We are proud to have set a near-term science-based target to reduce our operational (Scope 1 and 2) carbon emissions by 42% by 2030.”

The target has been reviewed and validated by the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi), demonstrating our alignment with pioneering companies across the world all playing our part in combating the climate crisis.

We are one of 5,231 companies worldwide with clearly defined, science-based pathways to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Following extensive energy audits, more than 20 energy-saving projects have been mapped to support the delivery of this near-term target by 2030. Our UK facilities have been on 100% renewable, grid-sourced electricity since 2020, with a transition to solar currently being explored. We are also putting an increased focus on improving the circularity of our waste streams by means of compost, natural fertiliser, and animal feed - with 89% of all global waste being repurposed, reused, or recycled in 2023.

Ryan Govender, Interim CEO, said: "By setting a near-term science-based carbon reduction target, it ensures our commitments are meaningful and will have a positive impact on our planet. We're ramping up engagement with our suppliers, and seeing more targets adopted across our value chain."
