The Science Based Targets initiative is hosting a training session on science-based target setting. This event is being held in conjunction with Climate Week NYC 2017.

When: Thursday, September 21, 4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. 

Where: New York Hilton Midtown, 1335 6th Ave, New York, NY 10019

Workshop Summary: SBTi experts will provide briefings to sustainability practitioners in companies and consultancy firms on key issues related to setting science-based greenhouse gas emission reduction targets including:

  • Defining what constitutes a science-based target,
  • Describing the criteria and processes used by the SBTi team to independently validate company targets,
  • Training participants in the use of key target-setting methods and approaches, and
  • Providing guidelines for scope 3 target setting and identifying common challenges in this area.

Companies that have already successfully set independently validated targets will share their experience and offer insights on how they overcame some of the common challenges that companies face.


If you will be in New York during Climate Week, this is an excellent opportunity to advance your understanding of science-based target setting, prepare your company for a low-carbon future and build networks with other companies and practitioners.
