Regional SBT Exchange

A series of sector-specific Q&A sessions on the Science Based Targets methodologies

In this series of moderated Q&A sessions – organized with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) – we dive into the Science Based Targets methodologies and best practices in nine different sectors. Join us to get answers to your burning questions and in-depth discussions with industry peers.

Target group: Advanced companies delivering on SBTs or planning to set SBTs.

The Science Based Targets initiative is experiencing a surge in committed companies reaching over 3500 this summer. It shows a strong commitment from the private sector globally to deliver on the Paris agreement and choose transparent and scientific paths towards reaching a net-zero future.

In collaboration with the Science Based Targets initiative, local Global Compact networks from all over Europe are organizing a Regional Exchange series of sector-specific Q&As to address key challenges and best practices in decarbonizing each sector using the SBT methods.

The format allows you to post your questions ahead of the event enabling the climate experts to prepare thorough answers. Furthermore, each session will include a short presentation from companies that are successfully delivering on their SBT climate targets.

The sessions will be hosted by different local Global Compact networks. You can find a list of each session below along with links to event pages and registration links.

NB! Please bear ind mind that you need to register for the events via the e-learning platform UN Global Compact Academy and that you may post questions to the experts via the Academy until a week before each session.
