Science Based Targets for Financial institutions: Target Validation Criteria Deep Dive
9:00 AM - 10:30 AM ESTOnline
The finance sector is key to unlocking the system-wide change needed to reach net-zero emissions and limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial temperatures. In October, the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) released a new framework that, for the first time ever, allows financial institutions to set science-based targets that align lending and investment activities with the Paris Agreement.
This webinar will provide an in-depth explanation of this new framework. In order to help financial institutions and other stakeholders better understand this framework and how to prepare science-based target submissions, we will discuss the target validation criteria for financial institutions and offer an overview of the SBTi's recommendations for financial institutions. A Q&A portion will be available for participants to ask questions.
