Russian War: Statement from the SBTi CEO

19th Apr 2022

“The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) condemns the escalating Russian invasion of Ukraine. We are horrified by the atrocities and stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine as the victims of the war. In light of our partners’ statements and policies, the SBTi is pausing science-based target validations and commitments from companies headquartered in Russia and Belarus with immediate effect and until further notice.

“At this critical time for the world - faced with conflict, the ongoing pandemic and the climate crisis - we cannot let ourselves be divided. We must support one another to enable a brighter future.”
