OAKLAND, CA, September 9, 2021-
The Clorox Company (NYSE:CLX) announced today new science-based targets (SBTs) as part of its climate strategy, which will put the company on a path to net zero emissions across Scopes 1, 2 and 3 by 2050. By 2030, Clorox aims to reduce carbon emissions across its operations (Scopes 1 and 2) by 50 percent and pledges to reduce its value chain emissions (Scope 3) from its purchased goods and services and use of sold products by 25 percent, all on an absolute basis against a 2020 baseline.
Clorox's SBTs are in line with the Paris Agreement and have been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative, a partnership that defines and promotes best practice in science-based target setting and independently assesses companies' targets.
