Science Based Target-setting

Incorporate Science Based targets to align your company’s strategy with the goals of the Paris Agreement.

When are Targets considered Science Based?

Targets are considered ‘science-based’ if they are in line with what the latest climate science deems necessary to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement – limiting global warming to well-below 2 degrees Celsius preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius. By meeting these standards and signing the SBTi commitment letter your company will get recognized as “Committed” on the Science Based Target website, as well as the CDP, UN Global Compact and We Mean Business websites.

Let's get technical

Whether you are looking for assistance with KPI or STBi, we are here to help you.

Key Performance Indicator

A Key Performance Indicator (KPI) is a quantifiable value used to measure performance over a period for a specific target. In other words, KPI can demonstrate if your company effectively achieves set objectives. Your KPIs should relate to a particular business outcome with a performance measure, e.g., increasing revenue. While High-level KPIs relate to the overall performance of your company, low-level KPIs will define processes across departments or individual positions like sales, marketing, and HR.

Target Setting and STBi

Target Setting is a strategic process that specifically can establish performance targets for energy, water, and waste. By selecting a baseline for the current use and generation of energy, water, and waste, your company can set targets for future improvements based on Science Based Targets initiative (STBi).
