In this webinar you will
- learn the basics of Science Based Targets Initiative
- understand how your organization can benefit from setting the targets
- learn what you should consider when setting the targets and what tools are available for target setting
Science-based targets (SBT) provide companies with a clearly defined pathway to future-proof growth by specifying how much and how quickly they need to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) is a joint initiative by CDP, the UN Global Compact (UNGC), the World Resources Institute (WRI) and WWF intended to increase corporate ambition on climate action by mobilising companies to set greenhouse gas emission reduction targets consistent with the level of decarbonisation required by science to limit warming to less than 1.5ºC / 2°C compared to preindustrial temperatures.
Already 840 companies – including 19 Finnish companies – are taking science-based climate action and 345 companies have approved science-based targets.
In this webinar you will learn what SBT is, why setting science-based targets are good for business and how to get started.
You will also hear about companies already approved science-based targets and hear case study from Metso Oyj.
