SEDEX SMETA AUDIT
TRT received a 100% score on our most recent audit.
SBTi and ACI 1.5C CLIMATE CHALLENGE
Four years ago, TRT came out in support of the Paris Climate Accord and has since began reporting under the CDP and has joined both the SBTi and American Cleaning Institute’s (ACI) 1.5C Climate Challenge. We understand action may look different for different companies, but the challenge remains the same. In alignment with the SBTi and ACI signatories, TRT is examining our emissions to develop a corporate climate strategy and targets with the 1.5°C ambition, which strives to reach net-zero global emissions by 2050. We are targeting by 2023, to have set science-based GHG reduction targets. TRT began reporting its Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions in 2017.
As part of the SBTi and 1.5C Challenge we are looking at potential projects and technologies that will help us progress targeted emissions that will lead to meaningful reductions. Since 2017, TRT has reduced our overall emissions by 5% (based on a per pound basis). The challenge will be to continue to make reductions that will ultimately lead to net zero by 2050.
TRT recognizes the threat that the entire world community faces with climate change. To increase our transparency TRT joined the CDP in 2020; began carbon reporting in 2021 and started reporting under the supply chain forum in 2022. TRT has worked to hold its emissions in check to prevent any rise in global temperature over 1.5C between now and 2030 and beyond. The environmental impact we have on the planet is reported to the regulatory agencies on a continuous basis and shared with the public in our annual Sustainability Report. The CDP Project is another opportunity to become an active part in reducing the impact of climate change that affects us all.
SUPPLY CHAIN AUDIT PROGRAM
TRT belongs to a supply chain that includes international partners from North America Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands and stretches over North America to the European Union and beyond.
In 2021 TRT reached out to our suppliers to understand specific environmental, health, safety, social and economic standards are being always maintained. This most recent effort builds on a program that works to meet Halal, Kosher and SQF standards. We expanded those efforts in 2022 by engaging our suppliers using platforms we currently utilize such as Ecovadis and Sedex to gauge their level of activity and commitment to ESG issues. That will continue as we dig deeper into where opportunities for improvement exist.
