16 Science based targets We are proud that the Hero group, of which Semper is a part, submitted its targets to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) in 2022. With this, we have confirmed that we are developing science- based goals for our climate work. These are in line with the Paris Agreement and thus contribute to limiting global warming so that temperature does not rise more than 1.5 °C compared to the beginning of industrialisation. Global greenhouse gas emissions need to be halved by 2030 and reduced to net-zero by 2050. This must be done to prevent the worst eects of climate change. Hero group is one of roughly 4,600 companies in the world that have committed to working with Science Based Targets. Our goals and commitments will be validated by SBTi's experts in 2023 and then communicated to our stakeholders. We use scientific facts in our effort to reduce emissions.
