Amkor Technology commits to SBTi
Amkor Technology has committed to setting targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in alignment with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
Amkor's commitment includes the formulation of both near-term and net zero emissions targets. These targets are designed in accordance with SBTi's stringent guidelines, which define and promote best practices in emissions reduction. By adopting the SBTi framework, Amkor reinforces its dedication to proactively curbing its carbon footprint on a global scale in line with science-based principles. The company anticipates submitting its targets to SBTi for validation in the fourth quarter of 2023.
“At Amkor, we recognize that reducing our greenhouse gas emissions is a top priority for our customers, investors, employees, and other stakeholders,” said Giel Rutten, Amkor’s president and chief executive officer. “We have taken this important step towards net zero to move beyond what we have done already and advance our decarbonization efforts.”
Amkor's dedication to sustainability is deeply ingrained in its core values of Reliability and Trust. The decision to establish near-term and net zero emissions targets reflects the company's commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainable practices, further reinforcing its alignment with these core values.
