SBTN Calls for Assistance on Target Validation Pilot

The Science Based Targets Network (SBTN) has issued a request for proposals (RfP) to NGOs, consultancies and service providers to execute science-based target (SBT) validation services for companies in 2023. The SBTN’s SBTs for nature V1 – which launches in March – will cover detailed methodologies for companies to assess and prioritise environmental impacts and progress to setting freshwater and land targets. The SBTN’s target validation team will be responsible for piloting the target submission and validation processes for the initial group of target-setting companies. The SBTN – a collaboration of over 60 global non-profits and mission-driven organisations – said its “desired outcomes” of the target validation pilot would include “robust, feasible and clear validation criteria for companies, an understanding of anticipated process times and required resources to scale”. Additionally, the proposals will influence the network’s investigation of alternative validation models that best fit the complexity of the methods, the plans to scale, and the evolution of methods.  The deadline for organisations to respond to the RfP is 21 February.
