Partners and Supporters

The Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign is led by the Science Based Targets initiative in partnership with the UN Global Compact and the We Mean Business coalition. It was launched in 2019 by a global coalition of UN agencies, business and industry leaders.


On 19 October 2021, the SBTi's #ClimateActionDay saw over 750 companies from across more than 10 countries worldwide come together to celebrate ambitious 1.5°C-aligned climate action.

The day successfully showcased far-reaching and significant corporate support for bold 1.5°C-aligned climate action ahead of COP26.


In 2017, we became the first company globally to set new, science-based targets in line with the 1.5 degree trajectory recommended in the Paris Climate Accord. Jason Tarry Tesco UK and ROI CEO
