Nowadays, greenhouse effect reduction is a hotly-discussed topic. Whether you realize it or not, the impacts of GHGs are increasingly felt in everyday lives, posing a real threat to mankind.
They encompass weather anomalies, extreme weather events, higher Earth temperatures, melting glaciers in the poles, and increased risks of wildfires and heavy rain worldwide — all of which can further exacerbate living conditions if stakeholders are unwilling to take steps to restore the surrounding nature.
With this in mind, Tunas Sawa Erma Group (TSE Group) wholeheartedly takes part in efforts to limit these effects by committing to Net Zero Emissions 2050. This commitment is based on the awareness and belief that achieving net zero emissions is possible through teamwork and innovation from all players in the palm oil value chain.
To demonstrate such a promise, TSE Group uses Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) standards to define its emissions goals. SBTi is an initiative that develops and promotes scientific methods to align corporate emissions targets with the Paris Agreement.
The palm oil firm also adheres to local rules and regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) targets of 29% below business-as-usual or 41% with international help, set to be achieved by 2030.
Aware of the significant impact we can create, we decided to take on the theme of “Net Zero Emissions” in this edition of TSE Magazine. We’d like to encourage our counterparts to join us in this endeavor to lower greenhouse gas impacts both at home and abroad.
