LONDON – British fashion house Burberry has built on its existing 2022 sustainability commitments with the announcement of two new ambitious climate goals, approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

The new commitments relate to significantly reducing its scope one to three greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2022 and 2030 respectively, and are aligned with the Paris Climate Agreement’s goal to maintain the warming rate of 1.5°C.

“For the first time, we are setting targets for greenhouse gas emissions that apply to our extended supply chain, which is a significant addition to our already ambitious target of becoming carbon neutral in our own operational energy use by 2022,” Pam Batty, Burberry’s VP Corporate Responsibility said. “Changing the system requires collaboration, and we will be working closely with our supply chain partners to take the action needed to stay on track and achieve our goals.”
