S&P Market Intelligence – Science Based Targets Event – 22nd May 2019

Companies and other large organizations are increasingly being asked by investors, customers, employees, and policymakers to set Science-Based Targets (SBTs) for reducing their climate impacts in line with the goal of limiting global warming to well below 2-degrees Celsius.

Companies and other large organizations are increasingly being asked by investors, customers, employees, and policymakers to set Science-Based Targets (SBTs) for reducing their climate impacts in line with the goal of limiting global warming to well below 2-degrees Celsius. Science-based targets require that organizations address emissions generated by their own operations and those of their suppliers, which can contribute the majority of their emissions. This session will share Mastercard’s rationale for setting a science-based target, how it got to know which suppliers accounted for the largest share of emissions, and how it began the emissions reductions conversation with key supplier partners. The session will provide valuable guidance to other organizations considering a similar journey.

Brian Werner, Account Director, ESG at Trucost, part of S&P Global will be speaking at this event. For more info or details on how to register please click here
