Adient refines its 100% renewable electricity timeline
Company targets 2035 for all locations to attribute electricity usage to renewable sources
As part of Adient’s commitment to minimizing its carbon footprint and mitigating its impact on climate change, the company today refined its timeline for attaining its goal of attributing 100% of the electricity needed to power its facilities worldwide to renewable sources by 2035.
“At Adient, we are always driving our ESG initiatives forward,” said Doug Del Grosso, Adient president and CEO. “As part of our commitment to sustainability, we routinely evaluate the ever-changing market landscape to ensure our targets are both ambitious and achievable. This has led us to reevaluate our strategy and ultimately restate our renewable electricity goal as we continue to progress toward our GHG emissions-reduction targets.”
Adient’s updated renewable electricity strategy reflects improved insight into the renewable electricity resources available in each regional market and incorporates customer targets as well as input from independent third-party experts.
“We are proud to share that in fiscal year 2022, 14% of our electricity usage was attributable to renewable sources, and since 2019, we have reduced our absolute scope 1 and 2 emissions by 25%,” said Tammi Dukes, Adient vice president of Global Sustainability. “We are focused on increasing our renewable electricity share year over year to align with our customers’ expectations as well as our own emissions-reduction targets.”
In January 2022, Adient announced its science-based GHG emissions-reduction targets, and in October 2022, SBTi validated these targets. Specifically, Adient has committed to reducing its scope 1 and 2 absolute emissions* 75% by 2030** and its scope 3* emissions 35% by 2030**. Adient is focused on executing a plan to convert its electricity consumption derived from fossil fuels to renewable sources to achieve 100% renewable electricity by 2035.
