Science-Based vs Net-Zero Targets: How to meet stakeholder demands for climate ambition?

October 8

Free
Government ambitions, public expectations and investor demands. These are all driving an increase in the level of ambition expected of companies setting carbon targets. The goal is to align with a 1.5°C low-carbon economy. Companies who were setting arbitrary targets, or had no targets at all, have to prove they are in a position to make the necessary reductions. Even those companies that ambitious targets a few years ago are finding they are already outdated.
Buzzwords like “science-based”, “net-zero” and “carbon-positive” are increasingly being used. Navigating these options can be difficult. Understanding the right strategy for your organisation will ensure your target is keeping pace as the climate agenda moves at an ever-quickening pace.
In this webinar we will address these issues. Helping you to understand the options available and highlighting potential pitfalls. Our experts will cover:
  • How carbon targets have changed over the last 5 years
  • The options available that will ensure your target is ambitious enough, and how to avoid accusations of “greenwash”
  • How to understand what is required to meet your target
  • The impact of Covid-19 on targets, baselines and reporting
