Science Based Targets (SBTs) are fast becoming the quality label of climate action and are critical for Irish food, drink, and horticulture companies to demonstrate credibility to their customers, investors, employees, and regulators. Emissions reduction targets are considered “science based” if they are in line with what the latest climate science guidance required to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement – to limit global warming to 1.5°C. However, the process for setting SBTs can be complex, and delivery on them can be challenging for teams with limited capacity. The methodologies, standards, and solutions for setting and delivering on SBTs are evolving, requiring frequent review by food, drink, and horticulture companies.
In February, Origin Green launched the five part SBT webinar series to take large scale Origin Green member companies through the process of setting and delivering on SBTs, while also informing members on how to effectively communicate these targets to the market and their stakeholders. The webinar series attracted a high level of sector participation with over 130 organisations attending the sessions.
