The company has not set a company-wide target for an absolute reduction in GHG emissions yet.

SGS SA also has a science-based goal that, however, does not appear to explicitly target a company-wide reduction in emissions in absolute terms. Multinational inspection, verification, testing and certification company SGS commits to reduce scope 1, scope 2 and scope 3 (business travel) emissions per unit of revenue 45% by 2025 and 55% by 2030, from a 2014 base year. SGS also commits to reduce other scope 3 emissions per unit of revenue 50% by 2030, from a 2014 base year. The second target covers purchased goods and services, capital goods, fuel- and energy-related activities, waste generated in operations, and employee commuting.
