Posti Group has set ambitious, science-based climate targets that include value chain emissions in addition to its own emissions. The Science Based Targets initiative has now approved Posti's goals. The approval means that the targets are based on scientific research and will help Posti contribute to the Paris Climate Agreement's goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 ° degrees.
Posti is now one of ten Finnish companies whose targets are in line with SBTi's most ambitious 1.5° emission reduction level, and which are committed to the Business Ambition for 1.5° initiative.
According to the approved targets, Posti will reduce its absolute total emissions (scope 1, 2 & 3) by 50% from the 2020 level by 2030. The target includes Posti’s previous target to push its own emissions to zero and as a new target to have 100% fossil-free road transportations, also including the value chain, by 2030. Thus, Posti will have zero emissions in 2030 in terms of all its own emissions and all transportation.
