Climate change initiatives

Tata Chemicals’ emission reduction targets have been approved by SBTi

As part of our sustainability journey, Tata Chemicals is working for climate change mitigation by reducing carbon footprint. Our emissions reduction targets for our operations in India, North America, Europe and Kenya have een approved by the Science Based Targets initiative as consistent with levels required to keep global warming to well-below 2°C.

Tata Chemicals is one of over 1,000 companies that have signed up for Science-based Targets under the climate change initiative. The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) is a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
The SBTi defines and promotes best practices in science-based target setting and independently assesses companies’ targets. Science-based targets are emissions reduction targets in line with what the latest climate science says is needed to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement – to limit global warming to well-below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursue efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C.

Science-based targets are needed to prevent the worst impacts of climate change. These targets show companies how much and how quickly they need to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in order to be consistent with keeping warming below the most dangerous levels
