03 July 2023 – Geneva, Switzerland: ADB, an Enterprise and In-home solutions provider for Video and Telco operators, has become a member of SBTi (Science Based Targets initiative), a global movement helping to deliver a net-zero economy. SBTi enables businesses to set ambitious emissions reductions targets and accelerates companies across the world to halve emissions before 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions before 2050.
The SBTi has approved ADB’s near-term science-based emissions reduction target where ADB commits to reducing its Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions by 42% by 2030 from 2022 base year: https://sciencebasedtargets.org/companies-taking-action. By joining the SBTi, ADB is ensuring its climate action is aligned with the latest climate science.
According to the latest report from IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), we are extremely close to crossing the threshold of 1.5°C global temperature rise.
If we still want to limit it and avoid more catastrophic impacts, we must act fast and commit to halving global emissions before 2030 and achieving net-zero before 2050.
“ADB follows the principles of sustainable development, one of which is environmental stewardship. We recognize that corporate decarbonization is essential in addressing the climate change and mitigating its potential impacts. Therefore, we are ready to take radical steps to achieve this goal. We encourage other companies, especially those operating in video and telecommunications industry, to join SBTi initiative and set a near-term target to limit their emissions as well.” – said Marie-Noelle Vulliez, EVP & Corporate Counsel at ADB.
