11 Nov Deckers Sets Targets To Reduce Its Emissions
Deckers Brands announced it has set science-based targets to reduce its emissions and also released its Fiscal Year 2021 corporate responsibility and sustainability report, “Creating Change.”
The report details its goal to “advancing environmental and social improvements across its business, portfolio of brands, global supply chain, and communities worldwide.”
The report also outlines the “achievements” from its reporting year April 1, 2020 through March 31, 2021.
“I am proud of our bold commitment to reducing our environmental footprint through the establishment of science-based targets. Our Creating Change report highlights the positive environmental, social and governance impacts we are making, which is made possible by the collective passion and commitment of our dedicated employees who live by our value of doing good and doing great,” said Dave Powers, CEO and President, Deckers Brands.
In full-year 2021, Deckers increased its environmental efforts starting with measuring the carbon footprint of its organization. the company worked with The Carbon Trust to calculate a Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions baseline (FY19) and set GHG emissions reduction targets.
The following are its corporate targets filed with SBTi:
- Scope 1 and 2: Reduce absolute GHG emissions by 46 percent by FY30
- Scope 3: Reduce Scope 3 GHG emissions 58 percent per $m gross profit by FY30
“While we have made great efforts in our environmental journey, as evidenced by our science-based targets, our social impact has also been tremendous,” said Thomas Garcia, chief administrative officer. “In a year that was filled with so much global uncertainty, we are proud to continue doing good for our communities, the factories in which we operate and the planet on which we live.”
