We aim to make the SBT process as relevant and insightful as possible, openly addressing opportunities, but also challenges like the tracking of Scope 3 reductions. We see SBTs as one building block for a meaningful climate strategy. Combining them with forward-looking metrics and scenario-based models, we clarify what corporations need to do in what timeframe – and at what costs.
