Thimm joins Science Based Targets initiative and strengthens contribution to climate protection

Northeim, 18.10.2023 The packaging and display manufacturer Thimm has signed the Commitment Letter of the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and thereby commits to ambitious climate targets. By joining, Thimm strengthens its contribution to climate protection and underlines the company's commitment to sustainable business.

Kornelius Thimm, CEO of Thimm, emphasises the importance of this decision: "As a responsible family business, we have a clear position: we want to make our contribution to climate protection and take responsibility for our environment. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that Thimm has officially joined the SBTi!"

The SBTi is a cooperation between the CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The initiative offers companies a science-based methodology for setting their own climate targets. These science-based targets show companies how much and how fast they need to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to minimise the impact of climate change.

By becoming a member, Thimm is joining an international community of companies committed to climate protection. "The next step for us is to define concrete climate targets for our company, which will then be validated by SBTi," explains Kornelius Thimm. "For our customers, our membership means that we develop comprehensive targets and measures that reduce emissions along our entire value chain. This distinguishes us as a responsible partner."
