And as one of the first links in the food value chain, it is important for the entire agricultural sector that they at DLG Group help show the way to a greener industry and with the new sustainability plan they set a clear direction that will benefit their owners, customers and the world around them in both the short and long term.
The DLG Group’s climate targets are set in accordance with the UN’s climate panel IPCC’s recommendation to limit global warming to 1.5 ° C in relation to pre-industrial levels. The next step is to have the goals validated by the Science-Based Target Initiative, which verifies that the goals are in line with the objectives of the Paris Agreement.
