Raising the bar on corporate climate action


The Business Ambition for 1.5 Campaign was launched in the lead-up to the 2019 Climate Action Summit in an effort to raise the ambition on climate action and push companies to set science-based targets aligned with 1.5°C as opposed to 2°C or well-below 2°C. The campaign successfully helped bring on many signatories to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and was effectively merged into the UN Global Compact's Forward Faster initiative under Climate Action Target 1.

Companies that had signed onto the Business Ambition for 1.5 Campaign will continue to have their commitment as part of the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and the UN Global Compact continues to call on companies to set ambitious emissions reductions targets through the SBTi in line with their Corporate Net-Zero Standard.
