Reed & Mackay has stepped up its sustainability efforts by pledging a commitment to net-zero targets by 2050.
Its near and long-term company-wide emission reduction targets will be in line with climate science with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
The SBTi is a global body enabling businesses to set ambitious emissions reductions targets in line with the latest climate science. It is focused on accelerating companies across the world to halve emissions before 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions before 2050.
Reed & Mackay is committing to align with 1.5°C and net-zero through the Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign. It will now have two years to formulate its net-zero targets and present them to the SBTi for validation.
“Over the last couple of years, we have had an incredible level of engagement with our clients on the topic of sustainability and have made ambitious investments to address the urgent need to reduce carbon emissions within the travel sector,” said Christopher Truss, Reed & Mackay’s International Development & Sustainability Director.
“We are proud to step up and make this commitment to SBTi. We know that several of our clients have done the same and we are pleased to align behind a collective mission to set meaningful and impactful emissions reductions targets.”
Since 2021, the company has become a United Nations Global Compact participant; partnered with Neste for sustainable aviation biofuels; and kickstarted the development of a sustainability module allowing clients to manage their travel programmes in accordance with CO2 parameters.
