We’ve all heard of it: the aim of becoming “net-zero”. Companies around the world are setting net-zero targets, yet there currently isn’t a global standard to distinguish what truly constitutes a science-based net-zero target. Now, in the lead-up to COP 26, the SBTi is hard at work developing the first-ever global standard for net-zero criteria. This webinar offered an overview of the SBTi Net-Zero Standard Criteria development process, addressed key questions, and presented next steps.
Various approaches for the calculation of science-based targets are available (contraction, compression, convergence). They all make predictions about how the industry and the respective companies will evolve in the future and consider these factors in calculating individual targets. The different approaches all have their pros and cons, and some may be more appropriate for certain companies than others. DFGE helps you to choose the right method and decide which factors should be included in your calculations: we are happy to help with an objective that is oriented to your needs. As the first official Science Based Targets Partner of CDP in the DACH region, we already support numerous companies from DAX, MDAX to SMEs in the calculation, analysis and introduction of Science Based Targets.
