Set Science-Based Emission Reduction Targets

The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) provides companies with a clearly defined pathway to future-proof growth by specifying how much and how quickly they need to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.

Many companies are already demonstrating they have the skills, expertise and ingenuity to make this a reality — but need ambitious emissions reduction targets that ensure the transformational action they take is aligned with current climate science.

Science-based target setting has become a standard business practice, and corporations are playing a major role in driving down global greenhouse gas emissions and in supporting the implementation of country commitments.

The Science Based Targets

The Science Based Targets initiative provides guidance documents, webinars and other resources such as science-based target setting tools. To learn more about how to set a science-based target, visit

The SBTi is a partnership between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The SBTi call to action is one of the We Mean Business Coalition commitments. Join other companies in committing to align your corporate voluntary greenhouse gas reduction targets with climate science.
