To help the financial sector realize its potential to drive down global GHG emissions, the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) is creating a framework for financial institutions to set science-based climate targets in line with the ambition of the Paris Agreement.
Science-based targets require that organizations address emissions generated by their own operations and those of their suppliers. How can sustainable purchasers build a procurement strategy aligned with science-based targets?
Learn what stakeholders had to say about how financial institutions should set targets to align their lending and investment portfolios with the level of ambition required by climate science.
Ceres 2020 will mobilize the world's most influential capital market leaders to accelerate and scale up solutions to the most pressing global sustainability challenges.

More and more companies are setting science-based emissions-reduction targets. These targets represent a company’s share of the global carbon budget, the amount of carbon the world can collectively emit while hoping to limit global temperature rise to 2 degrees C.
Approximately 40 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions come from energy generation, and about half of that energy is consumed by industrial or commercial users.
If a fifth of the world’s emissions come from the energy that keeps the world’s businesses running, how does business report those emissions?
