Description The Haga Initiative is a network of companies with the aim of reducing carbon emissions from the business sector and highlighting the climate issue by showing that ambitious climate strategies lead to business advantages and improve profitability.

The Haga Initiative was initiated in 2010 by eight well known companies: Axfood, Coca-Cola Enterprises Sverige, Fortum Värme, JM, Procter & Gamble Sverige, Stena Metall, Svenska Statoil and Vasakronan. Additional new companies are Lantmännen, HKScan, Löfbergs, McDonald's, Sveaskog, Folksam and Green Cargo.

Objectives Since its start 2010, the Haga Initiative has been working towards the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40 per cent until 2020. At the time, the pledge was ambitious, however the pace of reductions has been much faster than anticipated. More than half of the companies have already achieved the target by a wide margin. In order to act as forerunners, in Sweden and globally, the Haga Initiative have taken the ambition one step further and set the target at zero net emissions by 2030. Participants report on their targets,progress and planned actions"

New targets definition Scope 1: The target is net zero emission by 2030. This is translated into at least a 85 percent reduction in emissions from the company’s own operations, in scope 1, compared with a post- 1990 base year of their choice. To reach net zero emissions, the remaining emissions can be reduced through carbon offsets. The aim is a fossil fuel free company. Exception: If the company can show significant emission reductions, that are measurable, in other scopes. Scope 2: Purchased energy in scope 2 should be renewable or recycled. Scope 3: Emissions in scope 3 (upstream and downstream) are to be mapped out and identified. The companies need to develop a strategy to reduce the emissions based on relevance and feasibility.
