The SBTi or rather Science Based Targets Initiative emerged from the UN Global Compact with the aim of providing a framework to set and align targets with the Paris climate accords. It has become one of the leading climate action frameworks in recent years.
The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi):
On 11 April 2023, Xior submitted its CO2 reduction targets to SBTi. This plan outlines Xior's path to net zero carbon by 2050. By 2030, Xior will have reduced its scope 1 & 2 CO2 footprint by 42% compared to 2020. SBTi has officially validated Xior's reduction targets.
By joining SBTi, Xior shows not only that we are serious about our climate ambitions, but also more specifically that we are committed to a reduction level in line with international expectations.

The United Nations has formulated 17 Sustainable Development Goals to provide an answer to the many global sustainability challenges. Xior links 7 of these Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to its most important materialities. This creates Xior's ESG Framework, which forms the foundation of the entire ESG framework, with actions, initiatives and implementations.
