Science-Based Targets

The world’s leading climate scientists and governments agree that it is essential to limit the increase in global average temperature to below 2°C and ideally bellow 1,5°C. Tackling climate change and managing an organization’s environmental impacts and dependencies is critical in several ways. For instance, good environmental management helps organizations reduce their costs by saving energy, water or raw-material inputs. Setting meaningful science-based targets, addressing environmental impacts and reducing pollution contributes to climate protection, a better living environment for employees and customers, reduced compliance costs and a strengthened reputation. Science Based Targets is a joint initiative of CDP, the UN Global Compact (UNGC), the World Resources Institute (WRI) and WWF.
