UPCOMING WEBINAR: A GUIDE TO SETTING A SCIENCE-BASED TARGET

For our second webinar we put the spotlight on three organisations who have made the pledge – exploring why the initiative matters to them and steps they have already taken to reduce their emissions and set science-based targets.

So whether you have not yet made the pledge or are looking to gain insight in advance of confirming your first science-based target in May, this webinar is for you.

ABOUT

‘Pledge to Net Zero’ is the first industry commitment in the UK requiring science-based targets from its signatories to tackle greenhouse gas emissions within their organisations.

 

The pledge recognises the need for organisations from the environmental services sector to take a leadership role in the transition to a Net Zero carbon economy. Join with us and make the pledge.

Guidance for Pledge to Net Zero Signatories

In order to raise the bar in the environmental services sector, signatories to the Pledge to Net Zero shall commit to:

  1. Set and commit to deliver a greenhouse gas target in line with either a 1.5°C or well below 2°C climate change scenario – covering buildings and travel as a minimum.

  2. Publicly report greenhouse gas emissions and progress against this target each year

  3. Publish one piece of research/thought-leadership each year on practical steps to delivering an economy in line with climate science and in support of net zero carbon. Alternatively, signatories may choose to provide mentoring and support for smaller signatory companies in setting targets, reporting and meeting the requirements of the pledge.

But, you probably already know this. The question now is, "how does my organisation make a pledge and what detail is required from us?" We very much hope that the below guidance document will be able to assist:
