The company will also ask its suppliers to develop a carbon-efficient supply base


BorgWarner has announced its commitment to reduce its absolute Scope 3 emissions by at least 25% by 2031 from a 2021 baseline.

To meet the Scope 3 target, the company will focus on transitioning its product portfolio to electrification and furthering circular product development by increasing the content of recyclable and remanufactured materials, product weight reductions, and sustainable raw materials material selection.

The company will also ask its suppliers to develop a carbon-efficient supply base. To achieve this objective and promote environmental stewardship in its supply chain, BorgWarner’s cross-functional team of experts will offer to support and partner with suppliers on their journey toward emissions reduction.

Frédéric Lissalde, President and CEO, BorgWarner, said that the targets are fully supported by BorgWarner leadership and encourage a whole-company effort to meet the objectives as the company continues to support and collaborate with the partners to achieve sustainable operations and further the value chain.

The Scope 3 target and the company's previously announced target to achieve 85% absolute Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions reduction by 2030 (from a 2021 baseline) were formally submitted for validation to the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi).

The science-based targets and the carbon neutrality commitment align with Charging Forward, BorgWarner’s accelerated path to electrification, which aims to achieve a net-zero carbon emissions future for all, a press release from the company noted.
