WALTHAM, Mass., March 2, 2023—Cadmus, a leading provider of technical and strategic expertise to governments, energy utilities, and private sector companies worldwide, announced that its targets for greenhouse gas emission reduction have been determined by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to be well below the 2°C trajectory set by the Paris Agreement.  

Target validation is a critical step in the rigorous process of setting a science-based target, which confirms that a company’s stated emissions-reduction commitments align with the goals defined by the latest climate science to limit global warming. More than 2,000 companies across all sectors have set targets with SBTi

Cadmus’ official target states, “Cadmus commits to reduce scope 1 GHG emissions 57.2% per square meter of owned or leased office space by 2030 from a 2019 base year. Cadmus also commits to continue annually sourcing 100% renewable electricity through 2030. Cadmus further commits to reduce scope 3 GHG emissions 68.7% per dollar of sales revenue by 2035 from a 2019 base year.”

“Sustainability and resilience are fundamental motivations behind why we do the work we do at Cadmus, and incorporating climate considerations into our operations is essential,” said President and CEO Ian Kline. “Having our emissions-reduction goals validated by SBTi is an important milestone in our efforts to build a sustainable future for generations to come.” 

Cadmus is committed to taking measurable actions that ensure we are achieving our mission and growing as sustainably as possible. These include prioritizing LEED and ENERGY STAR certified office facilities, providing public transportation and bicycle benefits to employees, sourcing renewable energy and purchasing renewable energy certificates, as well as measuring and reporting energy consumption through SBTi and CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project).
