Decarbonisation is a commitment that Marshalls takes seriously. By aligning greenhouse gas emission reduction targets, across all relevant scopes, with well below 2°C emissions scenarios, Marshalls is clear that positive action towards a net-zero future by 2050 makes business sense.
In 2020, Marshalls has had its emissions reduction targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative as consistent with levels required to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. We commit to reduce scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions 40% per tonne of production by 2030 from a 2018 base year. We also commit that 73% of our suppliers by emissions, covering purchased goods and services and upstream transport and distribution, will have science-based targets by 2024.
As part of the Group’s climate change strategy and commitment to science-based targets, Marshalls supports the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) in line with the UK Government’s expectation that listed companies should disclose according to TCFD recommendations.
