Measure for Zero:

Science-based Targets.

Science-based targets (SBTs) are ambitious carbon reduction targets in line with climate science.

In 2015 at the Paris Summit, 195 of the world’s governments committed to prevent catastrophic climate change by limiting global warming to well below 2 degrees from pre-industrial temperatures. SBTs are long-term emission reduction targets that are aligned to the level of decarbonisation required to meet this objective.

Developing ambitious and meaningful carbon emission reduction targets is now becoming a pivotal part of a corporate sustainability strategy.

How we can help

with science-based targets.

We will assist you in setting a science-based target from gaining buy-in to getting your target officially approved and recognised.
  • Feasibility assessment

    Setting ambitious emissions reduction targets needs to be backed by a robust assessment of feasibility. We have developed our own tool to assist with this assessment process.

  • Making the business case

    Our assessment process can help you to gain the all-important buy-in to commit to SBTs. We can also help demonstrate the reputational benefits and the value of targets set with scientific rigour.
