Joining global corporate action towards Net-Zero: CDP’s accredited solutions providers can provide support on your journey
January has been a turbo-charged month for pushing forward systemic global action against climate change. The release of the SBTi’s 2020 progress report was the first study to investigate SBTs’ links to actual emissions reductions and to assess company progress against targets. The SBTi has also released the first draft of the SBTi Net-Zero Standard Criteria, which is available for public consultation until Friday, February 26. The Criteria are part of the SBTi’s Corporate Net-Zero Standard, the first attempt to create a global standard for net-zero business which will also include target-setting guidance and enable companies to have net-zero targets validated by the SBTi. The Net-Zero Standard is planned for finalization in November at COP 26, and the SBTi will begin validating net-zero targets in 2022.
Amidst all these exciting developments, CDP is continuing to work with and grow our accredited solutions providers network – expert environmental service providers who can support companies through every stage from ambition to strategy to action.
