The climate crisis poses an urgent and irreversible systemic threat to our planet. This calls for global action towards a low carbon economy in line with the internationally agreed acceptable limits of global warming, as set out in the Paris Agreement.
Companies have a pivotal role to play in reducing emissions and developing low carbon solutions, particularly in the industrial minerals sector. At Imerys, we see the role of our industry as central in facing this challenge and we are committed to act by reducing emissions and developing low carbon solutions.
We have set the target - validated by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) - to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 22.9% in 2025 and 36.0% in 2030 relative to revenue (tCO2/M€) from a 2018 base year in alignment with a 2°C trajectory. This includes Scope 1 emissions (direct emissions from sources owned or controlled by Imerys) and Scope 2 emissions (indirect emissions from the consumption of purchased energy in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol).
Imerys employees who wish to receive the coronavirus vaccine are being supported to do so, as the Group works with its people, local communities and local authorities to navigate the pandemic safely.
Imerys is demonstrating its confidence in its sustainability roadmap by linking its financing strategy to its sustainability ambitions.
50 houses in Argentina have already been constructed with a new type of bricks made with 90% perlite residue - this is a perfect illustration of applying circular economy to the mineral industry.
