SETTING SCIENCE-BASED TARGETS TO ACHIEVE NET-ZERO

Access the new UN Global Compact Academy E-learning Course on Science-Based Targets

Prepared in close cooperation with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), the session aims at breaking down and illustrating the complexities around science-based targets (SBTs), introducing the initiative and showcasing the benefits of setting SBTs.

Science-based targets provide companies with a clearly defined pathway to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, helping prevent the worst impacts of climate change and future-proof business growth. In light of the latest climate science, the UN Global Compact calls on all companies to set their science-based targets with 1.5°C pathways and reach net-zero emissions by no later than 2050.

This Academy e-learning course will guide you in the process of setting a science-based target in support of a net-zero future. It will also offer an opportunity to hear from other companies about why they think setting science-based targets makes good business sense.

By completing this session and related learning materials, you will learn:

  • What is a science-based target?
  • How to set a science-based target?
  • What can companies do to align with net-zero?
