Climate change is a global issue that affects everyone and every thing on our planet. At Tepperman's, we know that although we can't fix the problem by ourselves, we can do what we can to reduce our contribution to it. By showing leadership with our initiatives to reduce our own greenhouse gas emissions, we hope to inspire others to do the same, because it is only together that we can enact the change we need.
We will be aligning our emission reduction targets with the Science Based Targets initiative. Science-based targets provide companies with a clearly defined pathway to future-proof growth by specifying how much and how quickly they need to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to pursue efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C.
In order to meet our targets, we performed our first ever greenhouse gas inventory of our operations to establish 2019 as our baseline emissions year. This will help us better understand where we can make improvements on our emissions and track our improvements. Presented below are scope 1 and scope 2 data from our annual greenhouse gas inventories. We’re currently still evaluating some limited scope 3 data, and look forward to incorporating it into future years.
