Exploring The Science-Based-Targets Initiative & Project Drawdown

All roads lead to Rome but only a few will guide us to a Sustainable Future

Science-Based Targets

The Science-Based-Target initiative (SBTi) is a collaborative partnership between a bunch of organizations with fancy abbreviations, CDP, UNGC, WRI and WFF. To be more precise, we are talking about the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The purpose of the SBTi is to drive ambitions towards targeted climate action.

  • Technical assistance and development and distribution of resources in order to accelerate the decrease in emissions.
  • Assessment and validation of the targets by independent experts.
  • Lead partner of a global United Nations coalition calling for companies globally to set net-zero targets.

Project Drawdown

The mission here is to help the world reach the “Drawdown” point, the moment when Greenhouse gas levels peak, stop climbing and then steadily start to decline. Of course, the true goal is to stop climate change, preferably as quickly, safely and equitably as possible.

  1. Support sinks — uplift and improve nature’s carbon cycle, embracing the carbon-capturing capabilities of oceans and forests.
  2. Improve society — fostering equality for all.
