Delta Group commits to the Science Based Target Initiative

As proud winners of the PrintWeek 2022 Environmental Company of the Year, we are progressing further on our sustainability journey, to become net zero by 2030. The Delta Group is proud to announce that we have signed up to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi)

We will be implementing further robust emissions reduction targets at a pace and scale required by climate science. We have joined the Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign – the world’s largest and fastest-growing industry leaders that are aligning with 1.5°C by helping to halve global emissions by 2030.

As the world transitions to a zero-carbon economy, Delta Group is now one of only 1326 pioneering companies globally to have made this commitment.

It is critical to more than halve global emissions by 2030 – business as usual is no longer an option. We need to see the numbers of companies with net-zero, 1.5°C-aligned targets swell from hundreds to thousands, and fast.

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 practice in science-based target setting and independently assesses companies’ targets. This global campaign looks to rally leadership from all non-state actors for a healthy, resilient, zero carbon recovery

The initiative provides companies with clearly defines pathways and goals in order to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and help towards the prevention of dangerous climate change and the world’s journey to a zero-carbon economy.

As Europe’s leading visual communication specialist, Delta Group delivers exceptional marketing services to major Brand clients across markets. Delta Group is in a unique position to help clients reduce their own Scope 3 emissions through their value chain.

Starzeus Hassan-Mcghee, Delta Group’s Sustainability Director, explains “We implemented the Delta Net Zero strategy in 2021, firstly to respond to our clients growing demand for support for their own sustainability agenda, and in reaction that we want to be the most responsible business that we can be. We work with an array of clients, producing bespoke visuals for them. It is our duty to ensure that the products we produce are made in a way that does not harm the environment. As a business, we recognise the urgency to reduce our own climate impact and the SBTi helps us to strengthen this pursuit”

This is one of Delta Group’s many efforts towards building a greener future. 2021 has been a very proactive year in terms of making progress towards our Sustainability targets.
