SBTi approves Alstom’s emission reduction targets
The Science Based Targets (SBTi) initiative approved the emission reduction targets set by Alstom.
Scientific objectives have been defined to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement, which aims to limit global warming to less than 2 ° C above pre-industrial points.
Alstom said the greenhouse gas emissions targets of its operations are consistent with the reductions needed to limit warming to 1.5 ° C.

SBTi is a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World-Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
Cécile Texier, Vice President of Sustainable Development and CSR at Alstom, declared: “As a world leader in mobility solutions, energy transition and decarbonisation in transport are at the heart of everything we do at Alstom. This external validation of our objectives demonstrates our strong and sustained commitment to long-term energy and climate challenges.
The company said it is committed to reducing absolute GHG emissions from its operations by 25% by 2025 compared to baseline 2019.
It has also committed to reducing Scope 3 (value chain) GHG emissions resulting from the use of sold rolling stock products by 35% per passenger-kilometer by 2030 compared to the baseline year. 2019.
These targets were set out in Alstom in Motion’s strategy, which declared ambitious environmental targets for 2025.
Other Alstom goals include a 25% reduction in the energy consumption of solutions, using 100% renewable sources for electricity consumption, and 100% eco-design of newly developed solutions.
