TKE Joins Global Net-Zero Emission Effort
TKE is among companies committed to the Business Ambition for 1.5˚ campaign, led by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) in partnership with the U.N. Global Compact and the We Mean Business Coalition in an “urgent call-to-action for companies to ensure their (CO2) emissions will match with the 1.5˚ goal,” the OEM announced on May 28. The goal is linked to a requirement in the Paris Agreement that all countries work together to bring greenhouse gas emissions to zero within the second half of the 21st century. TKE said it is committed to reaching net-zero global emissions by 2050 at the latest, and observed it has adjusted its vehicle fleet, facilities and products. Other companies involved in the vertical-transportation (VT) industry that have either committed to the campaign or set targets include U.K. outfits Arup, Mott MacDonald Group, Buro Happold and the British Standards Institution. Globally, companies with VT divisions, such as Hitachi and Prysmian Group, have set targets and committed to the campaign, respectively.
