Sustainability indicators

In October 2022, Recticel joined the SBTi community in a concerted effort to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Recticel has committed to SBTi to become a net-zero emission company on Scope 1 & 2 by 2030 and to reach net-zero on Scope 3 by 2050 at the latest. By 3Q2023, a detailed plan will be presented to SBTi for approval, with 2021 as baseline. 

All our emissions are calculated according to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol methodology for the full scope of our insulation activities, including Trimo, for the years 2021 and 2022. The emission reductions realised are fully in line with the SBTi recommended yearly absolute reduction for Scope 1 & 2.

The sustainability intensity indicators are based on realised sales volume instead of turnover, to eliminate any price induced volatility in the indicator, irrelevant to the climate change contribution.

tCO2e emissions per scope   Change 2022 compared to 
2021 (baseline SBTi)
Scope 1 + 2   11.2% reduction
Scope 3   0.0%
Renewable Energy Indicator    
Photo Voltaic Energy (own production)   309% increase
Intensity Indicators    
Carbon Intensity 1 (tCO2e/m³) ratio tCO2e scope 1,2 / m³ sales volume 12.4% reduction
Carbon Intensity 2 (tCO2e/m³) ratio tCO2e scope 1,2,3 / m³ sales volume 1.4% reduction
Energy Intensity (kWh/m³) ratio kWh energy consumed / m³ sales volume 10.5% reduction
