How to Set—and Implement—Science-Based Climate Targets

Scroll down

Session Description

More and more companies are setting increasingly ambitious climate targets—according to the CDP, 80 percent of the world’s 500 largest companies set emission-reduction or energy-specific targets in the 2014-15 financial year. How can a company ensure its efforts are contributing to a 2C pathway, or curbing temperature rises to below 2 degrees Celsius by the end of the century? What method is best suited to setting targets aligned with both science and company operations? In this session, companies from the pharmaceutical and food, beverage, and agriculture sectors will discuss how to apply science-based methodologies to company climate targets, and interactive breakout discussions will help the audience weigh the pros and cons of different approaches.
