Business in the Community Ireland (BITCI), in partnership with PwC, published its 5th annual Low Carbon Pledge Report.
The Pledge has grown in strength and ambition since its inception in 2018 and now has 68 companies signed up spanning 11 different sectors. These Pledge Signatories demonstrate their leadership in helping to achieve Ireland’s emissions reduction objectives and committing to setting Science Based Targets (SBTs) no later than December 2024 across their entire carbon footprint (Scope 1, 2, & 3).
The report found more businesses are escalating their focus on sustainability and prioritising decarbonisation across all areas of their operations. However, there is also an urgency for some to be more proactive in setting their targets and reducing their emissions, particularly around scope 3 emissions. Likewise, a greater focus on protecting nature is needed.
