Comprehensive Emission Reduction Strategy


Auralis is dedicated to leading the way in corporate sustainability by aligning its operations with the scientifically-backed goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. This document outlines the comprehensive strategies and specific measures Auralis has adopted to achieve this critical target, based on the latest climate science and best industry practices.

1. Understanding the 1.5°C Target

The 1.5°C target, established by the Paris Agreement, represents a pivotal threshold for avoiding the most severe impacts of climate change, such as extreme weather events, loss of biodiversity, and significant disruptions to human societies and economies. Achieving this goal necessitates rapid and far-reaching reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across all sectors. As a responsible corporate entity, Auralis recognizes its vital role in this global effort.

2. Partnership with Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi)

Auralis has partnered with the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi), a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The SBTi provides companies with a clear pathway to set GHG emission reduction targets that are in line with the latest climate science. This partnership ensures that Auralis’s targets are scientifically sound, transparent, and consistent with the global aim of limiting temperature rise to 1.5°C.

3. Emission Reduction Targets

Auralis has established ambitious emission reduction targets to guide its sustainability efforts:

  • Short-term Target (by 2025): Achieve a 30% reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions from the 2020 baseline. This includes direct emissions from company-owned or controlled sources and indirect emissions from the consumption of purchased electricity, steam, heating, and cooling.
  • Medium-term Target (by 2030): Realize a 50% reduction in Scope 1, Scope 2, and key Scope 3 emissions from the 2020 baseline. Scope 3 emissions include all other indirect emissions that occur in the company’s value chain.
  • Long-term Target (by 2050): Attain net-zero GHG emissions across all scopes, effectively neutralizing the company’s carbon footprint.

4. Comprehensive Strategies for Emission Reduction

To achieve these targets, Auralis has implemented a multifaceted strategy that encompasses energy efficiency, renewable energy adoption, sustainable supply chain management, innovation, and carbon offsetting. Each element is described in detail below:

4.1. Energy Efficiency Improvements

  • Building Upgrades: Auralis is retrofitting its existing buildings with state-of-the-art energy-efficient lighting, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. These upgrades are designed to reduce energy consumption while maintaining comfort and functionality.
  • Process Optimization: Through continuous improvement programs, Auralis optimizes manufacturing and operational processes to minimize energy use and waste. This includes upgrading machinery, automating systems, and adopting lean manufacturing principles.
  • Employee Engagement: Auralis has launched comprehensive energy-saving initiatives and training programs to encourage employees to adopt energy-efficient practices in their daily work routines. This includes incentives for innovative ideas that lead to energy savings.

4.2. Renewable Energy Adoption

  • Renewable Energy Purchase: Auralis is increasing its procurement of renewable energy through long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs) with solar and wind energy providers. These agreements ensure a steady supply of green energy for Auralis’s operations.
  • On-Site Renewable Energy: Auralis is investing in on-site renewable energy installations, such as solar panels and wind turbines, at its facilities. These installations provide a direct source of clean energy, reducing reliance on fossil fuels.
  • Investment in Emerging Technologies: Auralis is actively investing in emerging renewable energy technologies, such as advanced solar photovoltaics and next-generation wind turbines, to support long-term sustainability and innovation.

4.3. Sustainable Supply Chain Management

  • Supplier Engagement: Auralis collaborates closely with its suppliers to help them set and achieve their own emission reduction targets. This partnership approach ensures that sustainability efforts extend throughout the entire supply chain.
  • Sustainable Procurement: Auralis prioritizes the procurement of goods and services with lower carbon footprints. This includes sourcing materials from environmentally responsible suppliers and choosing products with minimal environmental impact.
  • Logistics Optimization: Auralis is optimizing its logistics and transportation networks to reduce emissions. This includes using fuel-efficient vehicles, optimizing delivery routes, and exploring alternative transportation methods such as electric vehicles.

4.4. Innovation and Research & Development (R&D)

  • Product Innovation: Auralis is committed to developing and marketing products that have a lower environmental impact throughout their lifecycle. This includes designing products for energy efficiency, durability, and recyclability.
  • R&D Investments: Auralis is investing significantly in research and development to discover new methods and technologies for reducing emissions. This includes exploring breakthrough technologies in areas such as carbon capture and storage (CCS) and alternative materials.

4.5. Carbon Offsetting and Sequestration

  • Carbon Offsetting Projects: Auralis invests in verified carbon offset projects, such as reforestation and renewable energy projects, to compensate for unavoidable emissions. These projects are carefully selected to ensure they deliver real and measurable environmental benefits.
  • Natural Climate Solutions: Auralis supports natural climate solutions, including reforestation, afforestation, and soil carbon sequestration. These initiatives enhance carbon sequestration and contribute to biodiversity conservation.

5. Monitoring and Reporting

Auralis is committed to transparent and rigorous monitoring and reporting of its progress toward these targets:

  • Annual Sustainability Reports: Auralis publishes detailed annual sustainability reports that provide comprehensive data on GHG emissions, reduction efforts, and progress toward targets. These reports are available to stakeholders and the public.
  • Third-Party Verification: Auralis engages independent third-party auditors to verify its emissions data and the effectiveness of its reduction measures. This ensures credibility and accountability in its reporting.

6. Collaboration and Advocacy

Auralis understands that achieving the 1.5°C target requires collective action. Therefore, Auralis actively engages in:

  • Industry Partnerships: Auralis collaborates with other companies and industry groups to share best practices, develop industry standards, and drive collective action toward emission reduction.
  • Policy Advocacy: Auralis advocates for robust climate policies and regulations that support the transition to a low-carbon economy. This includes engaging with policymakers, participating in industry forums, and supporting initiatives that promote sustainability.


Auralis’s commitment to setting and achieving ambitious emission reduction targets demonstrates its dedication to sustainability and its crucial role in the global effort to combat climate change. By implementing a comprehensive strategy and continuously improving its practices, Auralis aims to make a significant contribution to limiting global warming to 1.5°C and securing a sustainable future for generations to come.

Appendix: Glossary of Terms

  • Scope 1 Emissions: Direct GHG emissions from owned or controlled sources, such as fuel combustion in company-owned vehicles and facilities.
  • Scope 2 Emissions: Indirect GHG emissions from the generation of purchased electricity, steam, heating, and cooling consumed by the reporting company.
  • Scope 3 Emissions: All other indirect emissions that occur in the value chain of the reporting company, including both upstream and downstream emissions, such as those from purchased goods and services, business travel, and product use.
