With global mean temperatures increasing over 1°C above pre-industrial levels, the need to control environmental impacts is stronger than ever. The Ecometrica Platform allows you to set Science-Based Targets in line with best practice and current climate science.
In 2015, datasets showed that the global mean temperature increased over 1°C above pre-industrial levels. Similarly, greenhouse gas concentrations reached a new record as the first Northern hemisphere carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations, and then global average concentrations, crossed the 400-ppm barrier.
These findings reinforce that the need for organisations to control their environmental impacts is stronger than ever. Science-Based Targets (SBTs) allow your organisation to set energy and greenhouse gas emissions reductions targets in line with best practice and current climate science.
The Science-Based Targets Initiative, a joint effort between CDP, UN Global Compact, WWF and World Resources Institute, aims to increase corporate ambition on climate action by encouraging companies to align target setting with climate science. You can also read more about the initiative by visiting the Commit to Action campaign page on the CDP website.
