Science Based Targets (SBT)

The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) aims at promoting private companies’ climate action through emissions reduction targets grounded in science. SBTi is a partnership between the CDP (ex-Carbon Disclosure Project), the UN Global Compact, the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund (WWF).

A Science Based Target is a GHG emissions reduction target based on climate science. To be more specific, this is in line with the decarbonisation efforts needed to keep the global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.

By adopting 1.5°C-aligned targets, companies will have multiple advantages
  • Achieve a tangible and immediate progress towards the net-zero transition;
  • Better positioning and competitive advantage over other major players in the field;​
  • Innovation, which translates into higher efficiency and lower costs;
  • Greater appreciation from customers, investors, and other stakeholders;
  • Strengthen ESG rating such as CDP scores;
  • Reduce climate risks: “business as usual may mean no business at all”;
  • A better vision for their long-term climate strategy and planning.
