Flint Group confirms commitment to SBTi initiative
April 2023: Flint Group, a leading supplier of consumables and equipment for the print and packaging industries, has confirmed its commitment to the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).
The SBTi is designed to ensure companies commit to combating climate change by agreeing to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in line with science-based targets. Targets are considered ‘science-based’ if they align with the decarbonisation goals of the Paris Agreement – limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.
Steve Dryden, Flint Group CEO, comments: “Committing to the SBTi process is a significant step for Flint Group, which is accelerating its progress towards a more sustainable, lower-carbon future. The benefits of committing to a science-based target are numerous for our customers, our suppliers and Flint Group. Not only is it the right action to take for the planet, but it’s right that we support our partners deliver on their own commitments.”
As a leading supplier to the print & packaging industries, Flint Group continues to innovate to find novel ways to reduce the environmental impact of its products. Increasingly, services are playing an important role in helping customers optimise their production processes and reduce scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. By designing inherently circular products, which oftentimes utilise bio-renewable materials, the company is confident it can make a meaningful difference across the industry.
Steve concludes: “Reducing carbon emissions in line with the 1.5ºC scenario set out in the Paris Agreement cannot be done in isolation. We are embracing the SBTi process because we are passionate about proactively collaborating with customers and suppliers in a pragmatic and measurable way to reduce overall emissions.”
