Tesco have recently announced their ambitious Science-Based Target for emissions reduction committing the company to limiting global warming to a 1.5oC. They join 265 global organisations who recognise that what is good for the environment is good for business.
All of them would attest to the fact that committing to a Science-Based Target is major undertaking. Getting internal buy-in and setting your target are the first hurdles, and then there is the process for achieving ambitious targets over an extended period.
Carbon Credentials are pleased to announce that Science-Based Targets: from Theory to Practice will feature both Tesco and SBTi explaining the process and journey to the long-term commitment and delivery of a Science-Based Target for your organisation.
The key objectives for the event will be:
How to get an internal commitment to setting a SBT – the importance of senior management buy-in and company-wide engagement
Defining the approval process, the requirements and challenges of going through SBTi approval
Your target has been set, so now what? Going about how you can achieve it, problems and solutions.
Our guest speakers to discuss these objectives will be
Christina Downend, Climate Change Manager of Tesco Stores Ltd
Pedro Faria, Technical Director at CDP
Jane Baptist, Assistant Head of Sustainability at The Crown Estate
Who should attend?
This event will be of most value to anyone whose organisation is in the process of setting an SBT or wishing to start the process. This invite-only event is free to invitees. If you have not received an invitation from us, then please contact us here to arrange one.
The workshop will be hosted at our offices on Wednesday 5th July from 08.30 – 11.00 am. Breakfast will be provided.
