About us

We are a network of organizations working to shape private sector and city impacts on nature and climate through science-based target setting

Our vision

A global economy in which companies and cities operate within environmental boundaries on a socially equitable basis through the setting of science-based targets (SBTs) to transform their impact.


Building on the momentum of the Science Based Targets initiative and in response to business demand to set targets for the whole Earth system, a group of organizations have come together to form the Science Based Targets Network.


Our mission

  1. SBTs for cities and companies on all Earth systems
  2. Widespread adoption of SBTs for water, land, ocean, and
    biodiversity by 2025
  3. Deliver progress towards SDGs and global policy milestones
