SBTi Net-Zero Standard Consulting

Make a difference by making a science-based net-zero commitment.

Reduce Risks and Enhance Your ESG Rating by Setting a Net-Zero Target in Line With the SBTi Net-Zero Standard

As the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment report states, the world is running out of time to combat climate change and prevent major damage. To limit the global temperature rise to 1.5°C, companies must reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by at least 50% by 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions by mid-century.

Although the number of net-zero announcements is growing rapidly, the consistency, transparency, and scope of corporate commitments vary. For this reason, the Science-Based Targets (SBTi) initiative has developed and launched the first science-based framework for setting net-zero targets – the Net-Zero Standard. The standard provides companies with a guideline on calculating and defining a net-zero target that is verifiable, transparent, and state-of-the-art in environmental science.

Improve your ESG (Environmental, Social and Governmental) performance by setting a corporate net-zero target in accordance with the SBTi Net-Zero Standard. Partner with Sphera’s sustainability experts to increase the efficiency and accuracy of the target development process.

Profit from Sphera’s more than 30 years of experience in conducting corporate and product carbon footprints and evaluating suitable reduction measures, deep sector and material knowledge, and long-term relationship with CDP/SBTi. Here’s how we can help you:

Baseline Calculation

Establish your baseline by assessing emissions that are under your direct scope of influence (Scope 1 and 2) and by quantifying your value chain (Scope 3) emissions based on physical attributes and reliable industry-based emissions factors.

Definition of Reduction Potential

Identify emissions hotspots, assess and quantify alternative reduction pathways, compare technologies and provide insights on the feasibility and timeline for implementing those measures.

Target Setting

Derive emissions reduction targets for Scope 1 to 3, define near-term science-based targets to track your progress. Set a long-term net-zero target, including setting target boundaries, choosing a target year and calculation based on the SBTi Net-Zero Standard methodology.

Submission and Validation Support

Select and apply the appropriate SBTi net-zero pathway and target-setting method for your company’s specific situation. Coordinate a cooperative and comprehensive target submission and validation process between SBTi and your organization.
