Project Gigaton resources: setting a target

Setting an emissions target

Science-based targets provide companies with a clearly defined pathway to continue business as usual, while reducing their environmental impact. Targets adopted by companies to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are considered “science-based” if they are in line with what the latest climate science says is necessary to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement — to limit global warming to well-below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursue efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C.

Reducing GHG emissions, which fuel climate change, can seem daunting — but it doesn’t have to be. There are time-tested and cost-effective enterprise strategies that are designed to help address this challenge. So, what’s stopping your company from taking the next step and setting a target?

We’ve assembled a collection of resources, tools, case studies and initiatives to help get you started:
