Commitments, Duties, and Initiatives:

right. based on science represents a transparent way to a 2 °C world. Not only are we passionate about working for and offering advice on 2 °C compatibility with the focus on science-based targets - we are also committed to the overall goal of keeping global warming under 2 °C and actively bringing our skills into different initiatives.

Science-Based Targets

 

Science-based targets are emission targets, which are determined based on what climate scientists have identified as a global emission budget, in order to guarantee that global temperatures are kept well bellow under 2 °C. The calculation methods defined by the Science-Based Targets Initiative describe entrepreneurial emission targets, which accurately represent how many emissions a company is allowed to emit, if it wants to contribute its fair share towards keeping global temperatures well bellow 2 °C. It is possible for undertakings to commit themselves (voluntarily) to setting these emission targets. We have of course committed ourselves to setting science-based targets.
