Focusrite receive For Our Planet Gold Award

Group commit to net-zero emissions targets

 Focusrite Earth Day 2024 climate change net-zero emissions targets

With April 22 marking Earth Day 2024, Focusrite Group have announced that they have achieved Ecologi's prestigious For Our Planet Gold Award, and have committed to setting science-based emission reduction targets as part of their dedicated efforts towards sustainability and climate action.

Focusrite Group say that over the past year, they have calculated their environmental footprint down to individual component level, and have communicated transparently about their emissions in their first Environment and Climate Report, which was published in 2023. 

"We are thrilled to collaborate with Focusrite Group as one of their sustainability partners, aiding their support for a portfolio of high-quality, validated climate projects from around the world. Additionally, it is our pleasure to honour them with a Gold Award in the For Our Planet awards. Focusrite Group is advancing impressively towards net zero through ambitious emissions reduction goals and a robust net-zero strategy." - Joshua Price, Key Account Manager, Ecologi.

The targets set by the company are outlined by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), a corporate climate action organisation with notable partners such as CDP, the United Nations Global Compact and WWF. Their aim is to provide standards and tools that allow companies to set targets for reducing their greenhouse gas emissions in line with the latest climate science. 

“Aligning the Focusrite Group with this effort has been a key part of our environmental strategy. We started by looking at our internal operations, then our products, and now how we fit within our industry and beyond. By committing to setting science-based targets for decarbonisation we are following the latest climate science and plan to publish our ambitious targets in full. These will include annual reduction goals, ultimately forecast towards achieving net-zero emissions as early as possible.However, any actions we take on our own will not prevent global temperature rises, so we call on other companies to take the same action by committing to science-based 1.5°C and net-zero targets.” - Andy Land, Global Head of Sustainability, Focusrite Group
