The chemicals sector plays a central role in achieving climate goals of the Paris Agreement on account of its emissions intensiveness and high global demand growth. Leading global chemical companies have begun to set science-based targets that meet broader Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) criteria.

To catalyze broader action in the chemicals sector, the SBTi is launching a scoping project for developing sector methods and guidance. The scoping project is comprised of four phases: a kick-off webinar in October, gathering of findings through a stakeholder engagement process, two in-person workshops, and a final summary report.
