FLAG Science Based Target Setting Guidance Launch
The SBTi will host a virtual event in two time zones to launch the Forest, Land and Agriculture (FLAG) Science Based Target Setting Guidance.
On September 28, the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) is launching the world’s first Standard for companies in land-intensive sectors such as food, agriculture and forestry, to set science-based targets that include land-based emissions reductions and removals - the Forest, Land and Agriculture (FLAG) Science Based Target Setting Guidance.

Agriculture, forestry and other land use emissions represent nearly a quarter of global annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and even though many companies with land-intensive operations currently report their GHG emissions publicly, few account for land-based emissions or removals due to the lack of available guidance and methods - until now.
The SBTi FLAG Guidance will offer a common, robust, science-based pathway to how much and how quickly a company needs to cut its land-related emissions to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
This virtual event will introduce the SBTi FLAG Guidance and discuss how businesses in this sector can set robust FLAG emissions reduction targets, account for GHG removals and accelerate their decarbonization efforts to keep the 1.5°C global temperature target within reach.
