The business case

Impacts of business activities are the primary drivers of nature loss and climate change. And as home to 55% of the global population, cities also have a vital role to play in meeting global targets to tackle nature loss and climate change. 

Setting targets through the Science Based Targets Network means your company or city can be confident of doing enough to help restore balance to the global commons. Companies and cities need Science Based Targets for both climate and nature to future-proof their businesses and play their part in reducing the risk that nature loss and climate change present.

“It is very important that the business community has common guidance and is benchmarked against scientific frameworks. At Kering we have a science-based target for our greenhouse gas emissions to measure our climate actions, and a science-based target for nature is equally important to drive companies to take action on nature.” Marie-Claire Daveu
