Progress in 2022


Reducing our carbon footprint and helping to preserve vital resources


Our Science Based Targets

Arçelik has approved Science Based Targets (SBTs) for a well-below 2-degree scenario to reduce Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions by 30% and Scope 3 GHG emissions from the use phase of sold products by 15% by 2030 from a 2018 base year.

Arçelik has also committed to the Science Based Targets Initiative to become a Net Zero Company as of 2050 in line with the Science Based Targets Net Zero Standard. This means that Arçelik will set even more ambitious near term and long-term Science Based Targets in line with a 1.5 degree scenario. We will revise the new base year target as 2022 and broaden the scope to include all Arçelik’s joint ventures as well as all MDA (major domestic appliance) product groups. We will submit our Net Zero Target to the Science Based Targets Initiative as of 2024 March for validation.
