Asahi Carbon Zero greenhouse gas emissions targets receive SBTi validation

It’s never been more important for companies to have an achievable and measurable plan in place to meaningfully curb carbon emissions and tackle the critical issue of climate change before it’s too late. 

Asahi depends on the gifts of nature - we know that we can only brew our quality beers with the very best ingredients nature provides.

What is Asahi Carbon Zero?

We believe we all have a part to play in reducing our carbon emissions to preserve our planet. This is why Asahi Group Holdings adopted Asahi Carbon Zero – the strategy that sets our medium to long-term greenhouse gas emissions targets.

  • Asahi Carbon Zero pledges to a 30% reduction in absolute Scopes 1, 2 and 3 greenhouse gas emissions related to the domestic operations by 2030 from a 2015 base-year.
  • By 2050, we commit to zero absolute greenhouse gas emissions.

What does SBTi validation mean?

We are so pleased that the SBTi (the Science Based Targets initiative) has approved our Asahi Carbon Zero goals.

The SBTi is a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute and WWF. It defines and promotes best practice in setting science-based targets and independently assesses and approves company targets related to greenhouse gas emissions.

This means that our targets have been independently validated as being in line with the emissions reductions required to contain global temperature increase below 2 degrees Celsius, as per the Paris Agreement.
