Science Based Targets initiative

Quick description

The Science Based Targets initiative is a partnership between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The  SBTi  was established in 2015 to help companies to set emission reduction targets in line with climate science and Paris Agreement goals.[5] It is funded by IKEA FoundationAmazonBezos Earth Fund, We Mean Business coalition, Rockefeller Brothers Fund and UPS Foundation.


The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi):

  • Defines and promotes best practice in emissions reductions and net-zero targets in line with climate science.
  • Provides technical assistance and expert resources to companies who set science-based targets in line with the latest climate science.
  • Brings together a team of experts to provide companies with independent assessment and validation of targets.
  • The SBTi is the lead partner of the Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign – an urgent call to action from a global coalition of UN agencies, business and industry leaders, mobilizing companies to set net-zero science-based targets in line with a 1.5°C future.

The data is free and downloadable in Excel format.
