Protecting Climate and Nature

 Climate Change

By committing to the Science-Based Targets aligned with a 1.5° future by the close of 2024, collaborating with suppliers to prioritise the reduction of our scope 3 emissions, and establishing goals for deforestation-free practices, we are actively reshaping our operations to reduce our environmental footprint.

Our stories so far

Science Based Targets

THG is conscious of the impact of its operations and supply chain on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. But it is also highly aware and committed to its responsibility to reducing its emissions and have net-zero operational GHG emissions by 2040. ​​


In alignment with the latest climate science and the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, THG's net-zero GHG emission targets were officially validated by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) in late 2023.​

Partnership in Action (PACT)

Given that 97% of THG's overall carbon footprint originates from Scope 3 (indirect emissions), it is imperative for us to proactively address this issue in order to fulfill our net-zero carbon emission targets and commitments by 2040.​

To help solve the complexity of decarbonising THG’s scope 3, THG launched its Partnership in Action (PAct) initiative at the end of 2023. The programme aims to partner and collaborate  with suppliers and vendors to decarbonise their operations over time, which has the simultaneous benefit of  reducing THG’s scope 3 emissions. 

Eco Deliveries

To reduce the environmental impact of our delivery services, while maintaining an exceptional customer experience, we have optimised our approach to ‘last-mile’ deliveries. ​

When customers selected an Eco Delivery at checkout, we used their postcode data to intelligently assess the most environmentally friendly delivery route. Our partners, Royal Mail and Paack, then ensured that the last mile of the delivery was completed on foot, electric vehicle or via bicycle couriers. ​

Overall, these optimisations drove a 24% year-on-year reduction in our CO2 emissions per shipment in the UK.
