Raising Business Ambition for 1.5°C: Setting a Science-Based Target

The UN Global Compact Network UK is delighted to invite you to "Raising Business Ambition for 1.5°C: Setting a Science-Based Target" webinar series, starting on 29th of April.

Over the past several years, science-based target-setting has rapidly become the most effective way for companies to align their corporate goals with the Paris Agreement. As many as 800 companies have already committed to set a science-based target. As stated in the 2018 IPCC Special Report on Global Warming, the transition to a low-carbon economy must be accelerated globally in order to hold warming to 1.5°. We are calling on all companies — across sectors — to set their science-based target with a new level of ambition — one that aligns with the 1.5° target.

This webinar series is held in partnership with the Carbon Trust, a mission-led global organisation who have supported numerous businesses worldwide in setting their science-based targets. We will explore the business benefits of setting a science-based target in line with 1.5°, specifically looking at the opportunities and challenges of implementing a science-based target by sector. The webinar will feature guidance from experts at the Carbon Trust and best practice examples from sector case studies.

Participation in this webinar is free. For more information and to register, click here.
