Calendar Club have signed up to the Science Based Target initiative

SBTi logo

At Calendar Club, we are working hard to reduce our environmental impact, and in May 2022, we took a giant leap and signed up to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

What is the SBTi?
The Science Based Targets initiative is a collaboration between CDP, World Resources Institute (WRI), the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF), and the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). The SBTi champions fact-based target setting in the transition to the low-carbon economy. Science-based targets provide companies with a clearly defined pathway specifying how much and how quickly they need to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, in the context of their longer-term business growth.

Why have we committed to SBTi?
We have been working on improving our overall environmental performance for several years. We started by mainly identifying key environmental issues and setting targets to reduce our impact. We then moved on to measuring our carbon footprint and had to decide if we should follow an offsetting route (such as investing in environmental projects like tree planting programmes) or an SBTi route (SBTi focuses on cutting emissions and doesn't allow offsetting). Rather than paying to offset our carbon emissions, we wanted to take action to reduce those emissions and make real changes to our processes, which is why we signed up to the SBTi. By making this commitment, we are setting and following science-based targets to make a real difference to our impact on the environment.

What are science-based targets?
Targets adopted by companies to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are considered “science-based” if they are in line with the level of decarbonisation required to keep global temperature increase below 2 degrees Celsius, and pursuing efforts to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees, compared to pre-industrial temperatures.

Scope 1, 2 & 3 emissionsOur published commitment with SBTi
All companies that are signed up to SBTi have their targets published on the SBTi website. You can read our commitment below and by visiting SBTi. Please note that Zebra MTD Limited is our parent company and its subsidiaries consist of Calendar Club, Otter House and Carousel Calendars:

Goals we have achievedWhy is taking climate action important to us and our sector?
Our primary drive when we formed our environmental steering team in 2019, was a genuine one to improve environmental performance. We believe it is vitally important to every business and every employee, in every sector. We also believe we have a corporate responsibility to act now and not wait.

Future Challenges
As well as continuing the work to cut our emissions in line with our SBTi plan, we will also be engaging with our suppliers. Our aim is to strongly encourage them, and help them, to sign up to SBTi in line with our commitment.
