Ensinger sets itself ambitious climate protection goals

Participation in the Science Based Targets Initiative 

Ensinger is taking its responsibility for climate protection seriously. A few months ago, the plastics processor announced it was becoming part of the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Now, a corresponding commitment letter has been signed. In this, Ensinger commits to submitting its climate goals to the SBTi and to aligning these goals to comply with the target of 1.5°C. This step is due to happen over the course of this year. With this initiative, Ensinger is also joining the campaigns "Business Ambition for 1.5°C" und "Race to Zero".

"The SBTi is guided by recognised global standards which are in line with the scientific consensus on limiting global warming in the context of the Paris Agreement", explained the company’s Head of Sustainability, Klaus Ensinger. "Thanks to its sound scientific basis, the goals and measures are transparent, verifiable and credible."

Dr. Oliver Frey, Managing Director at Ensinger, pointed out that the globally active, family business intended to pursue an ambitious approach which would deliver the required impact in the long term, regarding both the goals and the resources used. Climate protection asked a lot of the company, added Dr. Frey. "It is a marathon, not a sprint. With this commitment we want to draw attention to and highlight our responsibility for the agreed goals, and align our activities accordingly."
