Taking Science Based Targets to the Next Level
Wednesday, Feb 15, 2017; 1:45-2:45pm
Presenter: JP Leous, Senior Manager, Corporate Relations
Nearly 200 companies have committed to setting science based targets (SBTs) around greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), but there's more to SBTs than GHGs. Water and land impacts are significant and incredibly complex pieces of the puzzle. While greenhouse gas emissions are equally destructive throughout the world, land and water impacts depend on location. Join this session to understand how your company can set comprehensive, meaningful sustainability targets that respect ecological limits, and learn how leading business leaders are already incorporating water and land impacts into their targets. JP Leous will highlight findings from a recent WRI working paper, From Doing Better to Doing Enough: Anchoring Corporate Sustainability Targets in Science.
