David Brown Santasalo Announces Commitment to SBTi
November 3, 2021
David Brown Santasalo is acutely aware of the need to fast track change due to the climate emergency and recognizes the critical part that businesses have in driving the decarbonization of the global economy. The company is committed to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), which provides a defined pathway for corporate organizations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, in line with the latest climate science.
This means they will be setting the targets necessary to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement and to limit global warming to 1.5C. This is in line with the latest SBTi call to action and reflecting the most ambitious target to date.
This approach to climate change is a critical, priority component of a wider Environmental Social Governance (ESG) framework. As part of an environmental improvement program, DBS collected energy data and associated carbon emissions back to 2018 and promoted resource efficiency across its business. The Bulli site in Australia has reduced its emissions by 47% in the first half of 2021 following an energy efficiency drive and the installation of solar panels.
David Armitt, CEO of David Brown Santasalo said, “At David Brown Santasalo we are a global business that has an obligation to consider our impact on our communities and stakeholders. With the real and urgent need to tackle climate change, we recognize that businesses need to play their part and to act now. We will not only be seeking to reduce our direct emissions; we will continue to innovate and further improve the efficiency of our products and services. DBS are committed to the challenges ahead and have already started taking action and are prepared to harness the growing number of new technologies and ideas that will ensure our business resilience now and in the future.”
