If your organisation is keen to set science-based targets and looking for guidance on the subject, please join us on Thursday 26th March for a focused webinar session on 'What does science-based target setting mean for Southern African companies?'.

Delivered by our experts and drawing on experience of client projects, this webinar will cover the following topics:

  • What are science-based targets and why are they important?
  • The business benefits of measuring carbon emissions and target-setting
  • Challenges and opportunities specific to companies in Southern Africa
  • An overview of the sectoral decarbonisation approach methodology
  • Insights from client case studies
Guest speaker

We are delighted that expert Rebekah Hughes-Khan, Project Officer in the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) through WWF South Africa, will be joining the webinar as a guest speaker to discuss the business case for setting a science-based target and recent updates from the SBTi. 

Who is this for?

This webinar will be invaluable for anyone building the business case internally for science-based target setting. We want to equip you with all the information necessary to get the conversation started, and will discuss the challenges and opportunities specific to companies in Southern Africa. Having both served on the Technical Advisory Group for the Science Based Targets initiative and advised clients on individual projects, we are well positioned to do this.
