Introducing our Sustainability & Energy team’s guide to setting science-based greenhouse gas emissions targets

January 12, 2016


Companies around the world are using a new approach to setting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets that is informed by climate science. Science-based targets aim to limit a global temperature increase to less than 2°C (compared to pre-industrial temperatures) and prevent the most adverse effects of climate change. Organizations setting ambitious science-based targets are leading the way towards a low-carbon economy.

In this guide, WSP’s Sustainability & Energy team provides an overview of science-based target-setting methodologies and outlines the process for companies interested in setting ambitious emissions reduction targets.
