Description

Welcome to this webinar organised by NMC and WWF where you will learn how to set science based targets which are in line with the Paris Agreement!

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C released 8th of October assesses the prospects for limiting global warming to 1.5°C and shows the critical need for urgent action. Approved by 195 governments, the report underscores the small window of opportunity we have to move from the dangerous path the world is on. Keeping global average temperature increase to 1.5°C will be a massive undertaking with implications for all sectors but it is achievable.

Science-based targets (SBT) aim to provide companies with a clearly-defined pathway to future-proof growth by aligning their strategies with the goals of the Paris Agreement the international accord to limit global warming to well below 2°C, and pursuing efforts towards 1.5°C. The SBT strives to use the most up-to-date climate science.

During this session, experts from WWF, will help participants understand Science Based Target, how to set their company’s target and hear from the private sector on why setting science-based targets is good for business.

Stefan Henningsson, Senior Advisor Climate at WWF, will start the webinar by presenting the IPPC report, followed by Alexander Farsan, Science Based Targets Coordinator at WWF, who will talk about the SBT. Then a representative from Tetra Pak will present how they work with SBT.
