Achieving Internal Buy-In to Set Science-Based Targets

Date: 21 October 2020
Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm Europe/London
Location: Online

Reducing emissions is likely to have an impact on stakeholders throughout a company’s entire value chain, making it important to gain buy-in with all relevant actors across business units, the value chain, and up to the C-Suite from the beginning of the process. A cross-departmental approach ensures more efficient data collection and action, as well as supporting the identification of emissions hotspots most relevant to a company.

This webinar aims to support those interested in setting science-based targets in achieving internal buy-in across business departments and senior management by exploring the business case for science-based targets, and providing practical tips on building internal support as well as how to navigate potential challenges and push-back. The webinar will feature expert guidance and best practice examples from business case studies.

Hosted by UN Global Compact Network UK and the Science Based Targets initiative.
