Transitioning to net-zero
29 Oct 2021
As the urgency around the climate emergency increases, more and more organizations are setting net-zero emissions targets. But without a common science-based definition of what constitutes a net-zero target, companies and their stakeholders can’t be sure that their long-term climate targets are credible or ambitious enough.
The Science Based Targets initiative has launched the first-ever science-based Net-Zero Standard. Combating the current inconsistencies that surround net-zero targets, it is a ground-breaking standard to ensure companies decarbonize at the pace and scale to align with the goals of the Paris Agreement and keep 1.5°C in reach.
