Danaher Commits to Set Science-Based, Net-Zero Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction Targets

Must Read

Washington- February 2024- Danaher Corporation announced that it has committed to set science-based greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets in line with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), including a long-term target to reach net-zero value chain emissions by no later than 2050. Danaher’s pledge encompasses Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions and complements its existing commitment to reduce Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions on an absolute basis by 50.4% by 2032 compared to 2021.

“At the heart of everything we do at Danaher is continuous improvement, and our sustainability program further exemplifies this commitment,” said Rainer M. Blair, Danaher’s President, and Chief Executive Officer. “Committing to near- and long-term targets to achieve net-zero GHG emissions across our value chain is a critical step toward reducing our climate impact and builds on our long-term commitments to make a positive impact on human health.”

Danaher plans to submit its GHG emission reduction targets to SBTi for validation against the SBTi criteria. The SBTi is a partnership between CDP, the UN Global Compact, the World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) that defines and promotes best practices in science-based target setting, offers resources and guidance to reduce barriers to adoption, and independently assesses and approves companies’ targets.
