How to implement ambitious GHG emission reductions - Science Based Target setting
Upcoming webinar

Science Based Targets (SBTs) are ambitious greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction goals that are in line with the decarbonisation required to keep global temperature increase to below 2°C compared to pre-industrial levels. 
Momentum has been building for companies to set SBTs, with over 260 companies worldwide now having made a commitment to establish SBTs, including Mars, PepsiCo, HSBC and GlaxoSmithKline. 
In this webinar, Corporate Citizenship will be joined by global environmental disclosure organisation CDP, presenting on the benefits of setting SBTs and discussing the practicalities. Diageo, one of the world’s leading alcoholic beverage companies, will also join for a Q&A to give a corporate perspective on setting a SBT. Click here to find out more. 
Date: 24th May, 2017
Time: 4pm - 5pm GMT

Event recap
Corporate Citizenship partners with Bloomberg and RobecoSAM

In April, Corporate Citizenship held an event in New York alongside Bloomberg and RobecoSAM focused on effective ESG data disclosure. We explored how investors evaluate ESG performance and steps companies can take to make their disclosure more effective. The event was attended by individuals from a range of backgrounds, including Investor Relations and Corporate Responsibility.
The event was part of Corporate Citizenship's Long-Term Value Project, which explores how and why investors are paying increasing attention to ESG issues. See our related research here

Service spotlight
Science Based Target setting  

Targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are considered science-based if they are in line with the level of decarbonisation required to keep global temperatures below 2°C compared to pre-industrial levels. Companies are increasingly understanding the potential long-term value that can be gained by setting Science Based Targets (SBTs).
With our SBT service offer, we can assist your organisation throughout the target setting process. We provide guidance on developing a target using the appropriate methodology; manage the official Validation of the target by the Science Based Target Initiative; help develop external climate change policies; establish internal and external communication plans; and convene key stakeholders to validate SBT commitments.
Join our upcoming SBT webinar to find out more.
To discuss how we could help your organisation set SBTs, please email
