Science-Based Targets (SBT)

Science-Based Targets

Set an Example by Setting Science-Based Targets

Science-Based Targets is a call for organisations to take the lead in steering society toward a brighter future.

Underpinned by global commitments to limiting global temperature increases to well below 2 °C, the Science Based Targets initiative compels businesses everywhere to not only do more, but to do enough. 

Our commitments to the Paris Agreement are ambitious yet urgent and require going beyond good intentions with actions that are cohesive and purposeful. Science-Based Targets promote a united and consistent approach with each organisation contributing through their own, individually prescribed, decarbonisation goals.

We support you in setting the goals, in calculating and planning and in communication.

Plan a strategy aligned with your business goals and relevant to your stakeholders by developing a sustainability roadmap and a materiality assessment.

The Scope 3 challenge

You are required to set an ambitious and measurable Scope 3 target, if Scope 3 emissions include a significant portion of your company’s overall emissions. We help you evaluate your value chain impacts and determine an appropriate target.

What Are Science-Based Targets?

Science-Based Targets are set by companies to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions at the rate required to limit global warming to below 2 °C, in accordance with the Paris Agreement.

The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) is a collaboration between a number of NGOs to champion the use of science-based targets, define and promote best practice, and independently assess and approve targets.

Part of the collaboration are: CDP, World Resources Institute (WRI), the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), and the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). It is one of the We Mean Business Coalition commitments.
