Understanding the Science-Based Targets Initiative SBTI


This course is a comprehensive program designed to educate professionals on integrating Science-Based Targets (SBTs) into business strategies to combat climate change. The course begins with an introduction to the urgency of climate action, explaining the concept and significance of SBTs and how they can align business operations with climate science. A detailed segment then delves into the science behind SBTs, examining the 1.5°C goal set by the Paris Agreement, the role of IPCC reports in defining targets, and key scientific concepts such as GHG emissions, carbon budget, and decarbonization.

The course also provides an in-depth look at the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), discussing its purpose, criteria for setting SBTs, and establishing these targets. This is followed by real-world case studies showcasing businesses that have successfully implemented SBTs, highlighting the strategies used, challenges encountered, and benefits gained. Practical steps for businesses wishing to adopt SBTs are then outlined, emphasizing the importance of internal auditing, stakeholder engagement, action plans, transparency, and reporting.

The course concludes with a session that re-emphasizes the importance of SBTs in meeting global climate goals, allowing them to explore topics in more depth. Targeted at business leaders, sustainability professionals, and those interested in aligning business with climate science, this course is crucial for understanding and implementing effective climate action strategies in the business sector.
