STICA Progress Report 2022

Our second Progress Report has now been published and is available for download. In this report, a majority of STICA member companies present their greenhouse gas emissions for Scopes 1, 2 and 3 activities, as well as disclose their targets. The report also includes a number of other important sections, including a discussion on strengths and limitations of the STICA methodology, an analysis of some of the key challenges companies and the industry are facing, and a call to action for policy makers.

In this report, for the first time, a majority of member companies are disclosing the full scope of their emissions. This is a very important step for understanding what companies should focus on in the coming years, and also in the name of transparency. That being said, transparency is not the end goal. The focus moving forward must be on actions that reduce company and industry emissions and that transform the industry overall. I also want to highlight an inconvenient truth: No matter how ambitious companies are in regards to climate action, without substantial changes in legislation, very significant financial investment and rapid innovation, the pace of greenhouse gas reductions for STICA member companies and the industry overall will be too slow, and may even be insignificant.

STICA Progress Report 2021

Our first Progress Report has now been published and is available for download. In this report we summarize the first steps taken by STICA member companies regarding climate action and reporting, presenting their greenhouse gas emissions from their scopes 1 and 2 activities. Next year company members will be required to present their greenhouse gas emissions for scopes 1, 2 and 3. They will also be asked to commit to targets aligned with what is required to stay within a 1.5°C pathway.
