FAQ: SBTi

Founded in 2015, the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) created a set of Science Based Targets to encourage businesses to set science-based emission reductions targets based on climate science. In 2021 the SBTi also released the Corporate Net Zero Standard, a framework aiming to keep companies on track within the 1.5-degree temperature increase limit set by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
