Britvic has pledged to pursue bolder greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets by signing up to the Science Based Targets initiative. Britvic joins around 600 leading companies from around the world in formally committing to independently verified science-based GHG emission reduction targets.

Britvic’s A Healthier Everyday sustainability strategy recognises climate change as one of the biggest threats facing the world today and the business has a longstanding commitment to reducing carbon emissions from its operations. Last year, Britvic reported a 14% reduction* in manufacturing carbon emissions relative to production and is working towards a further 5% reduction target for 2019.

Alison Rothnie, Corporate Responsibility Director, Britvic, says: “At Britvic, we are dedicated to sustainable business practices, which is why we are delighted to sign up to the Science Based Targets initiative. As part of our sustainability strategy, we’ve already taken a number of steps to minimise our environmental impact, including removing plastic from our supply chain through light weighting our bottles and 100% of our plastic bottles, cans and glass are fully recyclable.”

“We understand the role that industry has to play in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and our commitment to set a science-based emission reduction target marks the next step in Britvic’s contribution to the global fight against climate change.”

The Science Based Targets initiative is a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and one of the We Mean Business Coalition commitments.

Further information on Britvic’s targets will be published once approved by the Science Based Targets initiative.
