Taking Action to Address Climate Change
As part of Ultra’s commitment in addressing climate change, we recently joined the Supplier Leadership on Climate Transition (Supplier LoCT), an online learning platform that helps suppliers and major brands navigate the process of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In Supplier LoCT, we get hands-on guidance from sustainability experts to keep us moving forward from the initial stage of measuring and reporting on our carbon footprint to setting a science-based target and ultimately reducing our emissions. We have currently been awarded the GHG Scope 1 & 2 Footprint Badge which is a big step in the right direction on our climate journey, and we look forward to continuing our work.
