Science Based Targets initiative: Case Studies and Updates

Date: 24 March 2020
Time: 09:00 am - 10:00 am Australia/Melbourne
Location: Online

The Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) is growing exponentially, with 800+ companies having set or committed to setting an SBT globally.

Many of the companies within the initiative are part of a global group, with operations across many countries, and often significant variations between the business activities in each region. For companies setting a SBT, it can be important to consider how the specific attributes and opportunities of a national business unit should feed into the global target-setting process. And for those that have a global target in place, the next challenge is to work out what contribution the business unit can make, and what the detailed, national-level implementation plan should look like.

Please join the Global Compact Network Australia (GCNA), WWF-Australia and Edge Environment as we explore and unpack the following key topics:

– Updates on the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi);

– Explore what global SBTs mean at the local level and why business-specific analysis can be important;

– Gain insights into how and why David Jones and Country Road Group are supporting the development of a SBT; and

– Understand how Carlton & United Breweries are implementing their SBTs in Australia.


– Maisie Auld, Senior Environmental Economist, Edge Environment

– Monica Richter, Senior Manager Low Carbon Futures, WWF Australia

– Corinne Schoch, Senior Adviser, Global Compact Network Australia

– Lok-Man Shu, Group Environmental Manager, David Jones and Country Road Group

– Kirsten Sturzaker, Sustainability Manager, Australia, Carlton & United Breweries

The webinar is best suited to multinational companies but will also be useful to anyone working for a company group with diverse business units, or those considering what the practical implementation phase of an SBT project might look like.
