We, Grolman Group, are announcing ambitious actions to combat climate change by committing to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, joining other organisations in leading the way on urgently tackling climate change.
The Grolman Group commits to Net Zero by 2050. Following the SBTi framework this means reducing absolute scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions by 90% by 2050, from a 2019 baseline. For its near term targets Grolman Group commits to reduce its Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 46% by 2030, from a 2019 baseline.
To accomplish this, we focus on circular innovation. We believe that the path to net zero is evidently linked to the concept of circularity. Only through circularity can we both create economic growth and avoid pollution and a wasteful use of valuable resources.
This is our vision because, as a family business, we want to pass on a healthy planet to the next generation. With these targets we are well on our way to reducing waste in our environment, and increasing our positive impact on our customers, the chemical industry and society.
We are convinced that all this will only be possible in close cooperation with our existing partners, suppliers, and customers, as well as new partners who will join us on this path. With our technical expertise and close personal relationships, we connect partners and needs along the entire value chain to jointly develop opportunities in circular innovation.
Carbon neutrality refers to a policy of not increasing carbon emissions and achieving carbon reductions through offsets.
Net zero carbon means making changes to reduce carbon emissions as much as possible – and offsets as a last resort.
