Edrington, the international ultra-premium spirits company, has announced a commitment to achieve Net Zero by 2045.

The Scotland-based company has accelerated its previous plan to become carbon neutral by 2030 with an ambitious plan to reduce its carbon emissions in line with a 1.5°C future.

Scott McCroskie, Chief Executive of Edrington said: “Our target of achieving Net Zero by 2045 is a significant increase on our previous commitment and it will touch every aspect of our business. I am proud of the progress we have made, but also clear that we have much more to do.”

Edrington is working with the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), a global body that drives ambitious corporate climate action. The SBTi launched the world’s first framework for corporate net-zero targets, guiding and monitoring companies in setting science-based targets consistent with limiting the global temperature rise to 1.5°C - a key element of the Glasgow Climate Pact signed at the COP26 global climate summit last year.

Tim Patterson, Edrington’s Head of Sustainability, said: “This is a significant and stretching commitment from Edrington to extend the scope of our ambition to Net Zero by 2045, in line with the Scottish Government’s Net Zero ambition. Our carbon reduction strategy will require us to work closely with our suppliers and partners to ensure that they join us on our journey towards Net Zero.”
