Science-Based Targets

Who figures out how much carbon we need to cut to keep the climate in check? Some companies just figure it out, but we wanted to work with the Science Based Targets initiative, an international organisation who knows their stuff. They’ve helped check our targets are in line with the latest climate science. Which means we can be sure we’re reducing our emissions in a way that’ll help avoid the worst effects of climate change.

  • The UK needs to get a move on if they’re gonna meet the Net Zero commitment.
  • How do they even work out the goals?
  • There’s something called the Science Based Targets initiative.
  • Ooh, check you out.

What are science-based targets?

Science-based targets are a set of goals that businesses provide with a clear route to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. They’re ‘science based’ if they’ve been developed in line with the target of keeping global warming below 2°C above pre-industrial levels.

How are science-based targets set?

Science-based targets are set using five steps:

1. Committing to the targets by submitting a letter to state you want to set a science-based target
2. Working on an emissions reduction target in line with SBTi’s criteria
3. Presenting and submitting the target to the SBTi for official validation
4. Announcing the target and informing stakeholders
5. Disclosing your targets through reporting on company-wide emissions and tracking target process annually



You've probably heard the term COP26 flying around a lot lately...

Climate Crisis

Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you'll have heard that we're in a climate crisis...

Carbon Neutral

'Neutral' sounds a bit 'lemon and herb' on paper, but when it comes to carbon it's actually pretty spicy.

Carbon Offsetting

Carbon offsetting is one way people and businesses can balance...

Net Zero

Think of Net Zero as the gold star of getting your carbon emissions in check...

Climate Justice

The climate crisis is unequal.


You know that feeling when you open the news and all you can see is forest fires, extreme floods and looming climate deadlines?

Systemic Change

When people talk about systemic change...

Carbon Footprint

Everyone has a carbon footprint.


This word gets thrown around a lot. 


Forests are basically mass air purifiers, removing carbon dioxide from the air...


Brands are all about reputation, and right now, sustainability is a hot topic.
