Science Based Target initiatives, June 2021
Updated: Apr 17, 2022
June 2021. The United Nations releases, "Taking the Temperature; Assessing and Scaling-Up Climate Ambition in the G7 Business Sector" [from: SBTi (Science-Based Targets initiative)]
The report assesses the emissions-reduction target data submitted by the G7 countries (Japan, Germany, France, UK, Canada, USA, Italy). "...with the current level of corporate climate ambition, all leading market indexes of the G7 economies are on temperature pathways that remain far from aligning with the climate goals set in Paris".
No index scorecard reaches down to 2.0°C, much less the 1.5°C that is so urgently needed.
