As countries work on economic aid and recovery packages in response to Covid-19, Electrolux joins 155 major companies in signing a statement from the Science Based Target Initiative, urging policy makers to align their recovery plans with the latest climate science. “In the face of these interconnected crises, we cannot afford to tackle one or the other. Human health depends on planetary health. We can – and must – tackle both”, the statement Uniting Business and Governments to Recover Better said. Electrolux remains committed to its Science Based climate targets for 2025 and to become climate neutral along the value chain by 2050, in alignment with the Paris Agreement to keep global warming well-below 2°C. “The corona pandemic has forced business into unprecedented territory – commented Jonas Samuelson, Electrolux President and CEO – but we believe addressing climate change is as urgent as ever. We will continue to strive for reduced emissions from our operations and products as we provide appliances that are essential for better and more sustainable living across the world”.
