Setting realistic, achievable and inspirational energy and greenhouse gas goals is a challenge. More often than not, companies set targets, without a pragmatic and focused plan for how they will try to achieve those goals. At the end of the year, they collectively hold their breath and hope that progress has been made against the goals. - What methodology for energy and greenhouse gas goal setting is most appropriate for your organization?
- Do you need a structured plan to achieve the goals you have already set?
- Are there risks to not achieving your goals, and if so, what are they?
Recently, more than 120 companies have committed to setting so-called "Science-Based Goals", a methodology developed by the UN Global Compact, WRI, WWF and CDP. This approach is based upon the idea that corporate greenhouse gas goals should be set so as to limit total global warming to under the 2-degree threshold that the scientific community feels is necessary to avoid the most damaging potential impacts of global warming.
What ever the approach, how can you go about setting goals that are realistic, technically feasible, and aspirational, and also have the confidence that you can get most, if not all of the way, to your goal.
In this round table lunch workshop, join us and fellow sustainability practitioners as we outline the Science Based Goal approach to energy and greenhouse gas target setting, as well as structured and focused approaches to achieving the goals that you set.
We invite you and your colleagues to a lunch seminar at our Boston Office for a roundtable discussion with other practitioners to learn from each other as to how best to develop, implement and communicate your energy and greenhouse gas goal process.
