ZTTSC has been approved for near-term and long-term science-based targets, confirming that its targets meet the SBTi criteria and recommendations. 

SBTi has assessed that ZTTSC’s near-term scope 1 and 2 targets align with a 1.5°C trajectory, and has also evaluated the company’s long-term scope 1, 2, and 3 targets to be consistent with SBTi’s 1.5°C mitigation pathways.

We are proud of this accomplishment and remain dedicated to positively impacting our planet,said ZTTSC in a social media post.

In May 2022, ZTTSC revealed its commitment to the SBTi, setting emissions reduction targets.

ZTTSC at the time said it had committed to the SBTi Net-Zero Standard, and pledged to establish a robust emissions reduction target aligned with the pace and scale required by climate science.
