Science Based Targets initiative

The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) have validated that the science-based greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets submitted by ACO Technologies plc conform with SBTi criteria and recommendation.  

ACO are fully committed to decarbonisation, shown by our support of the SBTi, an ambitious program that aligns corporate greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets with the global goal of limiting global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius. As a responsible and forward-thinking organisation, ACO recognises the urgent need to address climate change through decisive action.

ACO have set out substantial reduction targets to align with a trajectory of 1.5°C, using 2021 as a base year.

  • Continue sourcing 100% renewable electricity
  • Reduce absolute scope 1 & 2 GHG emissions by 45%
  • Reduce absolute scope 3 emissions from purchased goods and services, employee commuting and upstream and downstream transport and distribution by 25%

As a manufacturer, a large part of our emissions is in our scope 3. ACO is dedication to taking tangible steps towards a more sustainable future and aligning our supply chain. ACO are committed to collaborating with our supply chain partners to align our operations with the latest scientific consensus on climate change mitigation. By embracing SBTi, ACO is playing its part in tackling one of the greatest challenges of our time.
