Microphone Are science-based targets ambitious enough?

Why companies may have to do more than their 'fair share'

Nathan Shuler, sustainability solutions architect at Schneider Electric, and Ian Welsh debate the rise and rise of the science-based targets movement. Shuler explains why his business has committed to them, and outlines some of the corporate challenges around zero-carbon ambitions and properly engaging with scope 3 supply chain emissions. They discuss the internal arguments that need to be won to move companies towards adopting such targets, and whether, given many companies won’t take that step, real leadership in this requires business to go beyond doing their ‘fair share’. Shuler also explains how science-based targets can be made relevant for smaller organisations.
