Żabka rolls out decarbonization goals

Zabka Polska is the first company in Poland and the first food network in the Central and Eastern Europe region, whose decarbonization goals, included in its ESG strategy, were scientifically verified and approved by the international initiative called Science Based Targets (SBTi). The company thus proves that the path it has taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the commitments it has made jointly constitute a viable plan.

Combating climate change is a global challenge and a huge responsibility test for the company. Zabka is actively working to reduce its negative environmental impact. As a sustainable company, it addresses this challenge comprehensively by working to reduce energy consumption, looking for low- and zero-carbon sources, testing innovative green technologies and encouraging consumers to make planet-friendly choices. Among the goals that Zabka has declared in the new Corporate Responsibility Strategy announced this year is the achievement by 2025 of climate neutrality, in terms of GHG emissions in the scope 1 and 2, and emission intensity reduction in the scope 3, in line with the objectives of the Science Based Targets (SBTi) initiative, which the company joined in 2021.

In December this year the greenhouse gas emission reduction targets declared by Zabka have been officially approved by the SBTi Target Validation Team. The climate targets set by Zabka, according to the SBTi assessment, are accordant with the most ambitious provision of the Paris Agreement, whose goal is to limit global warming to 1.5°C compared to the pre-industrial era.

“In Zabka every day we take a number of ecological actions. We involve both our employees, franchisees and customers in these processes. We are actively working to reduce the negative environmental impact of our activities. In order to be even more effective, we are the first CEE chain to join the Science Based Targets initiative, which promotes responsible and transparent setting of carbon footprint reduction targets based on scientific knowledge. We are proud that our goals have been positively verified and approved by the SBTi” – emphasizes Anna Grabowska, Vice-President of the Management Board for Consumer Strategies in Zabka Group.
