Environmental sustainability is approached locally in our businesses, and is increasingly driven by customer demand, with each Group operating differently within their industry. However, with rising greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, climate change is occurring at rates much faster than anticipated and its effects are clearly felt worldwide. Tackling climate change is only possible if all efforts to reduce global carbon footprint are combined. Our goal at SHV is to reduce GHG emissions by at least 30%, by 2030. This target covers our direct GHG emissions, generated by business activities and indirect GHG emissions, from the purchase of fuels and electricity, used for heating, steaming and cooling.
In doing so we contribute to SDG 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.
