Driving Corporate Climate Ambition in the Asia-Pacific
The World Resources Institute (WRI) and the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) invites you to a webinar on science-based targets and a discussion on how the private sector can support climate stabilization through increased mitigation ambition. The 2015 Paris Agreement set a goal of limiting global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius; non-state actors, especially the private sector, play a critical role in achieving this goal. Science Based Targets (SBTs) are an established mechanism that companies are using to align their future growth with the transition to a low carbon economy.

This webinar will provide an introduction and overview of the Science Based Targets initiative and participating companies. Nate Aden, Senior Fellow, WRI, will define science-based targets and describe the criteria and process used to validate company target submissions. Andrew Buay, VP of Group Sustainability, Singapore Telecommunications Limited's (SingTel), will also provide brief remarks on SingTel's experience with setting SBTs. The webinar is open to companies interested in setting SBTs, policymakers, and other stakeholders, with a focus on the Asia-Pacific region.

Take note that this webinar will begin at 16:00 Sydney / 14:00 Japan / 12:00 Jakarta & Bangkok / 10:30 India / 06:00 Europe / 05:00 GMT / 00:00 EST. For those unable to attend live, please register to receive a recording of the webinar.

This webinar is being held in support of the Partnership to Strengthen Transparency for co-Innovation (PaSTI) project, a project of the Ministry of Environment, Japan in collaboration with the Overseas Environmental Cooperation Center (OECC), WRI, and other partners in the ASEAN region. The project is focused on enhancing the transparency of climate actions to improve the availability and accessibility of climate related data and information, and trigger adoption of innovative technologies and social systems in collaborative and cooperative manners.
