In addition, Icade decided to put its Climate & Biodiversity strategy to a vote at its General Meeting held in April 2022. It was included in the “Say on Climate and Biodiversity” resolution which was approved by over 99% of the shareholders.

The SBTi’s approval adds to the validity of Icade’s goals and attests to the quality of its approach as well as its compatibility with limiting global warming to 1.5°C, in accordance with climate science.
