AlsimRegional aircraft manufacturer ATR announced it has received the approval of its near-term emissions reduction targets by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). This independent assessment is a key achievement for ATR, who went through a robust evaluation of its entire set of emissions in order to define science-based reduction targets.

ATR is committed to achieving by 2030 a 50.4% reduction of absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions related to operational processes and energy consumption (Scope 1 and Scope 2), in line with the 1.5°C trajectory outlined in the Paris Agreements. Within the same timeframe, the manufacturer is committed to reducing by 30% the absolute GHG emissions generated by its in-service aircraft fleet (Scope 3 – use of sold products). The baseline for both targets is 2018.

Nathalie Tarnaud Laude, ATR’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “Receiving SBTi’s approval for our emissions reduction targets is a strong testimony to the validity of the goals we have set for our company and products. It shows that we are taking the necessary steps to align with the 1.5°C trajectory and serves as a powerful encouragement for our customers and suppliers to join us in reducing the environmental impact of our activities. Achieving low-emission aviation requires a collective effort, and ATR is committed to playing its part in limiting the effects of climate change.”

The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) is a programme that encourages and assists companies in setting science based targets (SBTs) for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. SBTi is a collaborative effort between CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project), the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute (WRI), and the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF).
