SIX Commits to Net Zero by No Later Than 2050
- Sep 21, 2022
Today, on Zero Emissions Day, SIX has committed to achieving the target of net zero CO2 emissions by 2050 at the latest. To underline this commitment, SIX has joined the Science-Based Target Initiative (SBTi).
SBTi is globally recognized when it comes to ESG. The organization is part of global efforts to achieve the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. The Paris Climate Agreement was signed in 2015 by the majority of UN member states. It aims to ensure that global warming be limited to below 2 °C by 2050. The SBTi targets and objectives are used as a benchmark by many other climate initiatives.
Jos Dijsselhof, CEO SIX: “This is a big step for our company and an integral part of our ESG strategy. Operating financial market infrastructures at the interface of capital and business puts SIX in a unique position to drive forward the attainment of climate targets right across the industry. To credibly advocate and leverage this position effectively, SIX must lead the way and put sustainability into practice.”
