NEUSS, Germany — Grolman Group announced a goal of committing to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. With the commitment, Grolman Group joins other organizations in leading the way on tackling climate change.
Grolman Group will set science-based targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to be approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi). These commitments align Grolman Group with the Paris Agreement's most ambitious goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C.
Following the SBTi framework this means reducing absolute scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions by 90% by 2050, from a 2019 baseline. For its near-term targets, Grolman Group commits to reduce its scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 46% by 2030, from a 2019 baseline.
“We are doing this because, as a family business, we want to pass on a healthy planet to the next generation. With these targets we are well on our way to reducing waste in our environment, and increasing our positive impact on our customers, the chemical industry and society. Our vision clearly reflects this: We want to sell chemicals to save the planet. We want the chemical industry to be the cure and not the disease,” said Florian Grolman, Managing Director of Grolman Group.
To accomplish the goal, Grolman Group will focus on circular innovation. “We believe that the path to net zero is evidently linked to the concept of circularity. Only through circular economy can we both create economic growth and avoid pollution and a wasteful use of valuable resources,” said Florian Grolman.
Grolman Group regards its existing network as an essential basis for reaching net zero, while also actively developing new partnerships for sustainable innovation. “We are convinced that all this will only be possible in close cooperation with our existing partners, suppliers, and customers, as well as new partners who will join us on this path. With our technical expertise and close personal relationships, we connect partners and needs along the entire value chain to jointly develop opportunities in circular innovation,” said Florian Grolman.Learn more at www.grolman.earth.
