What’s a Science-Based Target? What is the list of SBTi criteria? We guided participants through a step-by-step process on how to commit and develop your SBT. 

After setting the SBT, we shared existing solutions that could be considered to reduce your carbon emissions in your manufacturing facilities and your supply chain. 

During the training, Michael Sadowski, the primary author of the Apparel and Footwear Sector Science-Based Targets Guidance, explained the importance of companies setting SBTs aligned with the latest climate science to reduce climate impacts.

Science-Based Target Training Topics

  • The urgency, implications and impacts of climate change 
  • How to make a commitment to set Science-Based Targets?
  • Introduction to Science-Based Target Initiative (SBTi)
  • Overview the process of setting SBTs
  • Introduction to GHG accounting
  • Create Greenhouse Gas Inventory
  • Practical exercise on developing your GHG inventory, setting your Scope 1 and 2 targets aligned with 1.5 °C pathways 
  • What actions can companies take to achieve their targets?

After completing the Science-Based Target training, participants were able to:

  • Understand the importance and benefits of setting SBT
  • Develop your own greenhouse gas inventory and set emissions reduction targets using the SBTi’s target setting tool
  • Be better positioned to meet the growing demand for global decarbonisation efforts
  • Learn possible options exist in reducing your greenhouse gas emissions

The course was designed as a 3-hour in-person workshop that includes presentations from experienced sustainability professionals, interactive activities and guided exercises to reinforce learning. At the end of the course, participants were given an online test to understand if the participant can apply the knowledge and skills required to set a SBT. A course certificate was granted upon completion of the course and achieving a passing rate of 70% on the online test.
