Reduced climate impact
Science-based climate targets
Nobia has adopted science-based climate targets in line with the Paris Agreement, which are approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Our climate targets comprise both our own operations and our value chain. Since 2016, which is the base year for our climate target, we have transitioned our energy consumption to be more renewable, and at year-end we had achieved a 77% reduction.
Of our target for the value chain outside our direct control – that 70% of our suppliers based on their greenhouse gas emissions are to have adopted science-based climate target by 2025 – we have currently achieved a score of 49% of suppliers.
Energy efficiency and lower emissions
Many initiatives have been undertaken to enhance the efficiency of energy consumption of both electricity and heating at our production facilities. As example, discovered leakage from heat exchanger and incorrect installation of air compressor, has resulted in energy savings. In the UK, all production units have ISO 50000 energy management system certification, including monitoring and continuous improvements. Furthermore, production planning is optimised to create situations in which high-energy machinery can be switched off. We have 100% renewable electricity in our production and in our own stores. We have also converted to more fossil-free and more effective heat. At the end of the year, 76% of Nobia’s total generated heat in production and in own stores was renewable, which represents a total share of 89% renewable electricity and heating.
