South Pole is a proud member of the UN Global Compact and our sustainability policy guides day-to-day operations to ensure our environmental and social impact is consistently managed and optimised. We know that climate action is a team sport, which is why we've also signed the SBTi's Business Ambition for 1.5°C and the UNFCCC's Race to Zero initiatives to connect with like-minded organisations and to inspire others to join us. We have submitted our net zero target to SBTi in early 2023, and expect to have the target validated by the end of 2023.
We're also on the road to global B Corp certification. Our entities in the USA, Australia, Germany and Netherlands are already B Corps. We also expect to become B Corp certified in the UK and then across all entities globally in 2023.
