Masterclass: How to set Science-Based Targets
Science-based targets are emission reduction targets adopted by organisations to reduce their Greenhouse Gas emissions and address climate change. They are considered ‘science-based’ if they are in line with the level of decarbonisation required to keep global temperature increase below 2ºC, compared to pre-industrial temperatures, as described in the Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
This masterclass aims to support member organisations in understanding and improving knowledge on how to implement science-based targets and take a leadership position within the industry.
The masterclass will cover:
- The business case for setting SBTs, including the drivers for change.
- The process of setting SBTs
- The challenges of setting SBTs
- The opportunities of setting SBTs
Who should attend:
This masterclass is suitable for any built environment professional, but particularly business leaders and sustainability leaders involved in emission target setting.
