through the SBTi process
Senior plc ("Senior" or "the Group"), an international manufacturer of high
technology components and systems, today announces that its ambitious Net Zero
science-based emission reduction targets have been validated by the Science

as the first company in the global Aerospace & Defence sector to have its
2025 emissions reduction targets independently verified and approved by SBTi.
Senior's verified SBTi targets, using 2018 as a base year are:
• Commitment to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across the value chain
• Near-term, commitment to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas
emissions 30% by 2025, and that 82% of suppliers by spend covering purchased
goods and services and capital goods will have science-based targets by 2025.
(2018 base year).
• Commitment to reduce absolute scope 1,2 and 3 greenhouse gas emissions 90% by
2040 from the same base year. (2018 base year).
SBTi's Target Validation Team assessed Senior's scope 1 and 2 near-term and
long-term target ambitions and scope 3 long-term ambition and has determined
that they are in line with the Paris agreement targets to limit global warming
to a 1.5°C trajectory.
In addition, SBTi commended Senior on the ambition of their overall target,
which is the highest designation available through the SBTi process.
