Science Based Targets for Nature (SBTN)

September 22, 2020
News item image Companies can now make science-based targets for both greenhouse gas emissions and biodiveristy.

Around 1000 companies have already committed to cutting greenhouse gas emissions in line with the science-based target for emissions. Now the same initiative has launched science-based targets guidance to define how companies can assess, prioritize, measure, address and track their impacts and dependencies on natural ecosystems. The guidance defines interim targets that companies can align with now across land use, freshwater use, climate impact and ecosystem integrity. The guidance uses an action framework comprising: a) avoid and reduce pressure on nature loss, b) restore and regenerate ecosystems, c) transform underlying systems to address the drivers of nature loss.

The guidance is an interim publication and will continue to be revised. Read more here and the SBTN guidance document here.
