The Clorox Co., parent company of CloroxPro, has committed to new science-based targets (SBTs) as part of its efforts to combat climate change across the company’s operations and supply chain.
The updated goals are in support of the international Paris Agreement and have been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative, an independent third-party accessor of companies’ SBTs.
Clorox’s new targets see the company reducing carbon emissions across its operations by 50 per cent by 2030 from the current 2020 baseline and a 25 per cent reduction from its supply chain over the same time frame.
The revised goals put Clorox on the path to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
“As a health and wellness company at heart, we recognise that the long-term well-being of future generations depends on the health of our planet,” said Linda Rendle, Clorox CEO.
“Taking decisive climate action is essential to protecting our planet and communities and demonstrates our commitment to our purpose – to champion people to be well and thrive.
“We have strong aspirations for decarbonising our business as we accelerate our growth agenda for long-term value creation for all stakeholders.”
