March, Vaisala We promise to set science-based goals to reduce Scope 3 emissions over the next few years, in line with the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).

However, Scope 3 (other indirect emissions in the value chain) makes up the majority of the footprint of most companies. As a result, Vaisala is currently focused on reducing these indirect emissions.

Is really great. We reduce our environmental footprint while helping our customers do the same for their business and reach their sustainability goals. We want to succeed today and in the future. Every company needs to find out how their business relates to global challenges and update their business accordingly, “summarizes Öistämö.
