Setting science-based targets
Enviro-Mark Solutions provides custom support to help organisations set and achieve science-based emissions reduction targets. We are the first CDP-accredited science-based targets partner in Australia and New Zealand.
Whether your organisation is starting from scratch or needs its work verified, we can help.
Why set a science-based target?
A science-based target is an emissions reduction goal set in line with the global carbon budget.
This budget caps global carbon emissions at one trillion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents (tCO2e), which gives us the best change of limiting global warming to less than 2°C. Learn more about science-based targets here.
Using science-based target principles allows organisations of any size or sector to make a meaningful and fair transition to the global low carbon economy.
To set a science-based target, organisations must measure emissions against the GHG Protocol, including looking at supply chain impacts. After measuring, companies can select and develop ambitious reduction targets for the next 5-15 years, with the ultimate goal of net-zero emissions by 2050. Organisations can submit their targets to the Science Based Target initiative for review and recognition.
Enviro-Mark Solutions welcomes any organisation that wants to set science-based targets to start the conversation today. Together we can develop a custom plan to apply our expertise to your business needs.
