Consilient Health has set a science-based target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

The latest climate science from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – described by the United Nations (UN) as “code red for humanity” – shows the urgency for action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C.

Consilient Health recognises the importance of rapid and deep emission cuts and our own responsibility as a business. We are proud to have set a science-based target, positioning us as leaders in the low-carbon transition.

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, which are published on their website.

The SBTi has validated Consilient Health’s near and long-term science-based emissions reduction targets, facilitating a robust approach to decarbonisation:

  • Consilient Health commits to reduce scope 1 and scope 2 GHG emissions 42% by 2030 from a 2021 base year, and to measure and reduce its scope 3 emissions.
  • Consilient Health commits to reduce scope 1+2+3 emissions 90% by 2050 from a 2021 base year.

By meeting both targets, and neutralising residual emissions from 2050 and beyond, Consilient Health will meet Net-Zero.

In addition to the above SBTi-validated targets, Consilient Health has set further goals. These are not validated by the SBTi, nor by any other third party, but were deemed important by Consilient Health to contribute to meaningful emission reductions and take full responsibility for our climate impact.

Consilient Health commits to:

  • reduce aggregated emissions from business travel, commuting, operational waste, and downstream distribution by 22.5% between 2021 to 2030
  • achieving Net-Zero by 2050
  • engage 30% of suppliers with climate-related activities by 2025, and
  • engage all suppliers by 2030 and demonstrate intention to reduce emissions from purchased goods & services and capital goods by implementing climate-related supplier onboarding pre-requisites.

Progress on validated and non-validated targets will be reported on an annual basis.
