The SBTi at COP27

As countries gather to take action towards achieving the world's collective climate goals, the window for action to keep global heating below catastrophic levels is closing fast. Every business must play its part in driving ambitious decarbonization.

Whether or not you're attending COP27, there are plenty of options for getting involved, from registering for our hybrid events or taking #COPClimateAction.


Since COP26, the number of companies setting science-based targets has doubled. Over 1,800 companies now have validated targets. Nearly 4,000 have committed to setting them. Despite this progress, hundreds of companies globally have yet to set targets and do their part in limiting global temperature increases.

To galvanize the uptake of science-based targets, the SBTi's COP27 program is underpinned by four key areas:

  • Net-Zero: Enabling companies to set net-zero aligned science-based targets through our Net-Zero Standard.
  • Scope 3: Helping to scale science-based decarbonization across the value chain.
  • FLAG (Forest, Land and Agriculture): Unleashing the vast, untapped potential of FLAG companies through our new guidance and pathway for the sector.
  • Global South: Demonstrating how science-based targets can help drive climate investment in the global south.

SBTi Events and Speaking Opportunities


COP27 presents an important opportunity for SBTi companies and financial institutions to encourage their sector peers to follow their leadership by setting science-based targets.

Our #COPClimateAction campaign is calling on companies and financial institutions to promote their validated targets during COP27, and ask their peers to develop targets as soon as possible.
