Sustainability metrics and targets

Carbon Reduction

In December 2022, we submitted our targets to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and were pleased to receive confirmation that our near-term and net-zero targets have been approved by the SBTi. This sees Dunelm algin to the latest climate science from the IPCC by limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C. Dunelm intends to achieve these targets with direct emissions reductions, any residual emissions in the long-term, will be neutralised in line with SBTi criteria. 

Overall Net-Zero Target
Dunelm Group PLC commits to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across the value chain by FY2040 from a FY2019 base year.

Near-Term Targets
Dunelm Group PLC commits to reduce absolute scopes 1 and 2 GHG emissions 50% by FY2030 from a FY2019 base year.
Dunelm Group PLC also commits to reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions 50% within the same timeframe.

Long-Term Targets
Dunelm commits to reduce absolute scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions 90% by FY2040 from a FY2019 base year.

Circular economy

Dunelm are committed to improving cotton farming practices globally with Better Cotton. Better Cotton is sourced via a chain of custody model called mass balance. This means that Better Cotton is not physically traceable to end products, however, Better Cotton Farmers benefit from the demand for Better Cotton in equivalent volumes to those we ‘source.’ For more information on mass balance system please click here
