Science Based Targets Network (SBTN) has launched a Request for Proposals (RfP) to NGOs, consultancies and service providers to execute science-based target validation services for companies in 2023.
In late March 2023, SBTN will launch science-based targets for nature v1 covering detailed methodologies for companies to assess and prioritize their environmental impacts and progress to setting freshwater and land targets. The target validation team will be responsible for piloting the target submission and validation processes for the initial group of target-setting companies.
The desired outcomes of the target validation pilot include robust, feasible and clear validation criteria for companies, an understanding of anticipated process times and required resources to scale. It will also inform SBTN’s investigation of alternative validation models that best fit the complexity of the methods, the plans to scale, and the evolution of methods.
Organizations are welcomed to respond to the RfP by no later than February 21, 2023.
