Webinar Series: Raising business ambition for 1.5°

Wed 6th May 2020, Online

Over the past years, science–based target setting has rapidly become the most effective way for companies to align their corporate goals with the Paris Agreement.

As stated in the 2018 IPCC Special Report on Global Warming, the transition to a sustainable, low carbon economy must be accelerated globally in order to hold warming to 1.5°. We are calling on all companies – across sectors – to set their science–based target with a new level of ambition – one that aligns with the 1.5° target.

This webinar series, held in partnership with the UN Global Compact Network UK, will explore the business benefits of setting a science–based target in line with 1.5°, specifically looking at the opportunities and challenges of implementing a science–based target by sector.

The webinars will feature guidance from experts at the Carbon Trust and best practice examples from sector case studies.
