The Science Based Targets Network (SBTN) has launched a public consultation on its draft technical guidance to set the first land science-based targets. These land targets will centre on the protection and restoration of ecosystems and look to “build on and complement” climate science-based targets through “incentivising corporate action”, beyond reducing greenhouse gas emissions, to “address the overall needs of the environment”. The public consultation, which is currently open and will run until 7 March, offers the public an opportunity to offer input into the Network’s multi-stakeholder process. This will help to ensure the finalised guidance for companies is as “robust, clear and practical as possible”, when released as part of science-based targets for nature V1. The SBTN will also be hosting a webinar on 22 February to provide additional information on the consultation process, the targets, and to address key questions.
📢 Today we are pleased to open a public consultation on draft technical guidance to equip companies to set the first land #ScienceBasedTargets🌳
