Did your company commit to set a Science-Based Target? Science-based targets provide businesses with a clearly defined pathway to future-proof growth — they specify how much and how quickly a company needs to reduce its emissions. Now is the time to put your company’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions into action. In this Academy session, experts from the Science Based Targets initiative will join you for a deep-dive on the methodologies and criteria used to set a science-based target.


By completing this session and related learning materials, you will learn to:

  • Apply the criteria set by the Science Based Targets initiative
  • Adopt a step-by-step approach to setting a science-based target
  • Use the Sectoral Decarbonization Approach (SDA) and GEVA (greenhouse gas emissions per unit of value added) tool
