Note: SBTi (Science Based Targets initiative) is organized by CDP, United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), World Resources Institute (WRI), and World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). These targets allow companies to set carbon reduction targets in a more scientific manner, which will help limit global warming to no more than 2°C (in response to the Paris Agreement), or even 1.5°C (in response to the IPCC's global warming 1.5°C report).
