In an economy saturated with varied sustainability targets and claims, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and confused. This Online Deep Dive is dedicated to establishing a clear and correct understanding of net zero and how it differs from other emission reduction targets.

Since the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) special report in 2018, which stated the need to reach net zero emissions by 2050 in order to limit global warming to 1.5 °C, the term ‘net zero’ has quickly become a buzzword. However, there are still differing understandings as to what net zero really means and how companies should be reaching it.

The Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) has set the only globally recognised and science-aligned definition of what net zero truly means for corporations. Understanding these requirements will help businesses to set realistic decarbonisation targets and strategies to achieve those targets. Moreover, the SBT framework is a widely accepted standard for setting climate targets, which contributes to the credibility of companies’ targets and facilitates comparability.

This Deep Dive is for people who
… are interested in improving their understanding of net zero as a concept
… are considering starting their own corporate journey to net zero and need guidance on setting credible emission reduction targets aligned with science.

What will you learn about?
  • Different types of climate targets and what they mean
  • The overarching concept of Net Zero
  • SBT requirements for Net Zero targets
  • Considerations to take into account when setting targets
  • Options for neutralisation

Participation is free of charge.
