What is SBTi

Updated: Mar 16, 2023


SBTi stands for Science Based Targets initiative, which is a global partnership of organizations that promotes the adoption of science-based targets to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and limit global warming to less than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The initiative was launched in 2015 as a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).


The SBTi provides a framework for companies and organizations to set targets for reducing their GHG emissions in line with the latest climate science. The initiative provides guidance on target-setting methodologies, verification and reporting procedures, and best practices for integrating science-based targets into business strategy and operations. The SBTi also provides companies with a platform for sharing their progress and achievements in reducing GHG emissions and contributing to the global effort to combat climate change.


To participate in the SBTi, companies must commit to setting science-based targets for reducing their GHG emissions and submit their targets for review and approval by the SBTi's technical advisory group. Companies that meet the SBTi's criteria for science-based targets can use the SBTi logo and receive recognition for their leadership in addressing climate change. The SBTi has been widely adopted by companies and organizations around the world as a framework for setting ambitious and credible targets for reducing GHG emissions and contributing to the global effort to combat climate change.
