SBTi approves Burberry’s net-zero emissions target


Burberry’s net-zero emissions target has been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

Burberry target’ to reach net-zero emissions by 2040 are based on the latest climate science and meet the urgent need to keep warming to 1.5°C in line with the Paris Agreement. Burberry’s net-zero target is underpinned by a series of commitments across scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions.

In the near term, the brand aims to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 95 per cent by 2023 from a 2017 base year, and reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions 46.2 per cent by 2030 from a 2019 base year.

In the long term, Burberry commits to maintain at least 95 per cent absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG reductions from 2023 through 2040 against a FY2017 base year, while reducing absolute scope 3 GHG emissions 90 per cent by 2040 from a 2019 base year.

Burberry’s net-zero emissions target builds on the British luxury brand’s longstanding commitment to reduce its direct and indirect environmental impacts and make a positive difference to the lives of people around the world. Burberry is currently carbon neutral across its own operations globally, all the electricity it uses is from renewable sources and almost every product it makes has a social or environmental benefit.
