Science Based Targets and Net-Zero for Financial Institutions





Join to learn how financial institutions can set ambitious climate targets and achieve net-zero through the Science Based Targets initiative.

Through their investment and lending services, financial institutions are in a unique position to encourage companies to set ambitious climate targets which correspond to the scenarios outlined in the Paris Agreement. Moreover, with the new EU Taxonomy, financial institutions have bigger incentives than ever to drive emissions reductions in their portfolios.

During this webinar, you will learn more about how financial institutions can set scientifically founded climate targets and why it is important that they do so. You will also get an overview of the three methods which Science Based Targets currently supports in the methodology. Finally, you will learn about the pathway to net-zero for financial institutions. There will also be plenty of time for questions throughout the webinar.

This event is organized by Global Compact Network Denmark in collaboration with the Global Compact Networks of Finland, Norway, and Sweden.
