Accent Equity is proud to announce the approval of its GHG emissions reduction targets and the validation of being in alignment with the Paris Agreement and the 1.5°C target.
“Setting science-based targets and reducing portfolio greenhouse gas emissions is a necessity to continue to be one of the leading investment funds in our space and will enable us to drive even better performance” says Niklas Sloutski, CEO of Accent Equity.
“Accent Equity is accelerating our journey to address climate change with ambitious greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets. Driving decarbonisation and science-based target setting is fundamental to create resilient and future-proofed companies”, says Johanna Hedman Palm, Sustainability Manager at Accent Equity.
Accent Equity’s headline target is:
To ensure that all portfolio companies have set their own approved science-based targets by 2030 (a decade before the timing required by the SBTi) – with an interim target of approved science-based targets covering 40% of invested capital by 2027
