edie launches new explains guide to setting science-based climate targets
Organisations looking to align their emissions reductions targets with climate science can now access a free 'edie Explains' guide breaking down everything they need to know about science-based targets.
The eleven-page edie Explains: Science-based Targets business guide, produced in association with EcoAct, answers key questions for organisations looking to set Paris-Agreement-aligned targets for reducing emissions across all scopes.
What makes emissions targets science-based? How can businesses go beyond 2C alignment and strive for 1.5C? And what role do these targets play in the net- zero movement? This free edie explains guide answers all these questions and more.
The guide provides best-practice advice, up-to-date facts and stats, case studies from businesses leading the corporate climate movement. The likes of Tesco, Pernod Ricard and Landsec are featured.
It also features an exclusive expert viewpoint from EcoAct's technical lead for science-based targets, Laurie Edwards, who provides an overview of trends in the corporate climate action space and advice on bridging the gap between ambitions and actions.
"A science-based target is an ambitious commitment, but it is an imperative one and one that with robust planning, is achievable," Edwards said.
