Is your organisation ready to lead?
The Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) 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.
Companies across the world have come to see science-based targets as vital to their environmental ambitions and their business success.

Our worldwide experience in sustainability roadmap development and materiality assessment means we can help you develop a strategy that is aligned with your business and relevant to your stakeholders.
The Scope 3 challenge
An ambitious and measureable Scope 3 target must be set, if Scope 3 emissions cover a significant portion of a company’s overall emissions. Many companies see their science-based targets refused because of lacking or incorrect Scope 3 measurement. With our industry-leading life cycle inventories and expertise we can help organisations evaluate their value chain impacts and determine the appropriate target.
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.
