What is SBTi

The Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) is an international non-governmental organization that provides scientific basis and framework standards for enterprises to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, ensuring that their emissions reduction targets are consistent with the goals of the Paris Agreement (limiting global warming to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels).



The initiative was jointly launched by four institutions: the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), all of which are members of the world's largest business climate action alliance - We Mean Business.
