Beckers Pledges to Adopt Comprehensive Science-Based Targets, Aiming for Net Zero by 2050

Beckers becomes first coil coatings company to commit to net-zero emissions by 2050, aligning with its broader aim to cut emissions throughout its value chain.

The company has committed to setting climate targets in accordance with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), and will submit these targets to the SBTi in due course.

“We are proud to be the first company in the coil coating industry to commit to the Net Zero target,” says Gavin Bown, CTO at Beckers. “Our proactive value chain approach to reducing our climate impact is a clear competitive advantage for us – both now and in the future.”

Between 2013 and 2023, Beckers achieved a 51% reduction in absolute CO2e emissions from its own operations (scope 1 and 2). However, since over 98% of the company's emissions come from its customers and suppliers (scope 3), Beckers needs to work closely with its entire value chain to make further progress.

“We believe in the power of collaboration and innovation to drive change,” says Bown. “While we are committed to our own sustainability goals, we understand the importance of supporting our suppliers and customers in their efforts. Success in this endeavor requires collective action across the entire value chain.”

“Achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 will be a challenge in the complex coil coating value chain in which we operate,” explains Nicklas Augustsson, CSO at Beckers. “But we must continue to do everything within our power to succeed, even though we don't have all answers or solutions today.”

Beckers' commitment to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) strengthens its strategy to swiftly reduce CO2e emissions in alignment with the latest scientific guidelines. Recently acknowledged by the Financial Times as one of Europe’s Climate Leaders, Beckers aims to submit its science-based climate targets to the SBTi. This dedication will help the company continue transitioning into a lower-impact business and reshape its collaboration with value chain partners.
