SBT Sector Exchanges
Companies are facing pressure to set 1.5°C science-based targets (SBT) and align their business strategies with a net-zero future.
Although sector-specific guidance has been developed for many industries, companies are still seeking support to better understand the best ways in which to approach setting and achieving science-based targets.
Organized by Global Compact Networks from Europe and the UN Global Compact Academy, this 6-part virtual series aims to support companies' understanding of sector-specific guidance (where applicable) and overcome sector-specific challenges as well as foster the exchange of good practices.
Through 60-minute Q&A sessions, participants have the opportunity to engage with SBTi experts and early SBTi adopters from the private sector to have their questions answered. Sessions will be held from 20 September to 25 October and each session will be hosted by a different Local Network.
You can find more information about the The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and their sector guidance here.
