Science-based vs net-zero targets: How to meet stakeholder demands for climate ambition?

Government ambitions, public expectations and investor demands. These are all driving an increase in the level of ambition expected of companies setting carbon targets. Global goals are shifting towards alignment with a 1.5°C low-carbon economy. Companies who were setting arbitrary targets, or had no targets at all, now need to react and demonstrate to stakeholders they are ready to take ambitious action. Even companies that had set ambitious targets a few years ago are finding they are already outdated, as climate policy and ambition levels have moved on.

Buzzwords like “science-based”, “net-zero” and “carbon-positive” are increasingly being used and 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 assess what is required to meet your target
  • The impact of Covid-19 on targets, baselines and reporting

RSVP to secure your place and to ensure that you are better informed to help your organisation meet the increased demand for climate ambition.
