Knowit’s climate efforts
Target: Knowit has committed to decreasing its absolute emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3, respectively) by at least 50 percent by 2030, compared with an average of the emissions in 2018, 2019, and 2020.
Result: See picture.
1) Since 2018, Knowit performs and annual Carbon Footprint Assessment to understand how its footprint is changing and what actions are needed to achieve the targets set.
2) In 2018 and 2019, Knowit and more than 40 other companies in the digitalization consultancy industry devised a roadmap for a fossil-free, climate-positive, competitive digitalization consultancy sector. The roadmap was drafted on commission by the Swedish government within the framework of the governmental initiative on a Fossil-Free Sweden. Part of the roadmap was that Knowit committed to halve the CO2 emission from its own operations in 2018 by 2030, and to be entirely fossil-free by 2045.
3) To reduce Knowit’s own impact, the Company has during 2021 established science-based targets in line with a net zero future, as a response to what the latest research indicates is needed to limit the effects on the climate.
