CT undertakes environmental transparency by disseminating information through CDP, a global non-profit organization that operates the world’s leading platform for disseminating environmental information

CT, a leading engineering company in technological innovation throughout the product life cycle, announces that it has reinforced its commitment to environmental transparency, by disclosing its environmental impact through CDP.

As part of its commitment to achieving a net-zero emissions economy by 2050, CT submitted several short- and long-term greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets for review. These targets have been validated by SBTi, a global body that helps companies set ambitious emissions reduction targets, in line with the latest advances in climate science.

Disclose greenhouse gas emissions: a mandatory response to the growing demand for environmental transparency

The recent IPCC report, described by the UN as a “code red for humanity”, highlights the imminent proximity to the 1.5 °C threshold that global temperatures will experience. Despite this urgency, the report suggests that serious consequences can still be avoided if emissions reductions are undertaken quickly. To achieve this, it is essential to halve global emissions by 2030 and achieve the goal of net zero emissions by 2050. This is an essential collective commitment, so global organizations are encouraged to align with the objectives based on scientific data, with the aim of achieving a limit of 1.5 ° C and net zero emissions, which would offer a path to a sustainable future, in the midst of the looming climate crisis.

In 2023, the record number of more than 23,000 companies that will disclose information through CDP has been reached. Disclosure of data on environmental impact is now a business norm. Since 2022, CT has disclosed its information through CDP and in 2023 has completed the CDP Climate Change questionnaire. CT data will be added to the world’s most comprehensive inventory of self-reported environmental data, helping to drive action through greater transparency.

In its disclosure, CT shared a comprehensive profile about greenhouse gas emissions. The greenhouse gas protocol has been applied in the reports of scopes 1, 2 and 3 with the organizational limits for the calculation of greenhouse gases, which include all TC centers subject to operational control.

“CT, a company dedicated to engineering projects, places special emphasis on the quality and environmental responsibility of its services. We are committed to protecting the environment, exceeding customer expectations and minimizing our environmental impact. This approach not only reinforces our position in the market, but also differentiates us from the competition. We believe that sustainability and environmental responsibility are essential aspects that influence our operations. By recognizing our contribution to greenhouse gas emissions, we are actively engaged in reducing our carbon footprint and tackling climate change.

Disclosure of greenhouse gas emissions plays a critical role in managing environmental risks by promoting transparency, accountability and risk assessment. Likewise, it allows us to understand and quantify our environmental impact, comply with regulations and improve resource efficiency. This transparency builds customer trust, promotes sustainability in the supply chain, and encourages innovation and collaboration. Finally, disclosure is a critical step in identifying, prioritizing and mitigating our environmental risks related to climate change, contributing to a more sustainable and resilient future,” says Chief Operating Officer Julien Brunet.

CT is taking major steps to contribute to a net-zero emissions economy

After careful review, the SBTi has approved CT’s short- and long-term emissions reduction targets, based on scientific data, considering them consistent with the goal of achieving net zero andnet missions in 2050.

Short term goals
• CT is committed to reducing absolute Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 42% in 2030, compared to 2022, the reference year.
• CT commits to increasing active annual supply of renewable electricity from 21% in 2022 to 100% in 2030.
• CT is also committed to reducing absolute Scope 3 GHG emissions by 42% during 2030, compared to 2022, the base year.

Long-term goals
• CT is committed to reducing absolute emissions of scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gases (GHG) by 90% in 2050, compared to 2022, the reference year.
• CT is also committed to reducing absolute Scope 3 GHG emissions by 90% within the same timeframe.

To ensure the highest degree of transparency, accountability and corporate leadership, CT will publish annual reports on progress against targets, along with a company-wide greenhouse gas emissions inventory.
