Deep Dive on Science-Based Target Setting

During Climate Week 2017 the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) will be hosting a training session on science-based target setting. Experts from the initiative will provide briefings to sustainability practitioners in companies and consultancy firms on key issues related to setting science-based greenhouse gas emission reduction targets including:
• Defining what constitutes a science-based target
• Describing the criteria and processes used by the SBTi team to independently validate company targets
• Training participants in the use of key target setting methods and approaches
• Providing guidelines for scope 3 target setting and identifying common challenges in this area

Companies that have already successfully set independently validated targets will also share their experience and offer insights on how they overcome some of the challenges many others also face.

This will be an exciting opportunity for companies and sustainability practitioners to advance their understanding of science-based target setting and to prepare for a low carbon future.
