Define your climate target with a Science Based Target (SBT)

Swiss Climate recommends that you set an ambitious climate target for controlling your CO2 emissions. This will give you a clear plan of where you want to go. Swiss Climate ensures that your targets are climate-friendly by applying the Science Based Targets (SBT) principles. Hundreds of companies have already set themselves a science-based climate target (SBT) to limit global warming to well below 2°C. The SBT is a global standard that is designed to reduce global warming to a minimum.
