The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) aims to mobilise companies to take action on climate change by setting science-based greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets. For the LED lighting industry, SBTi provides guidance on setting targets in line with limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. This involves reducing emissions across the entire value chain of LED lighting products, including manufacturing, transportation, use, and end-of-life disposal.
By setting science-based targets, companies can not only contribute to global efforts to combat climate change but also benefit from increased efficiency, reduced costs, and improved brand reputation. SBTi provides a framework for companies to develop and validate their targets, and its guidelines are endorsed by leading sustainability organisations, including the United Nations Global Compact, the World Wildlife Fund, and the Carbon Trust. Many leading LED lighting manufacturers and companies have already committed to science-based targets, driving progress towards a more sustainable future.
Lead the way to a low-carbon future
Lead the way to a zero-carbon economy, boost innovation and drive sustainable growth by setting ambitious, science-based emissions reduction targets. Science-based targets provide companies with a clearly-defined path to reduce emissions in line with the Paris Agreement goals. More than 4,000 businesses around the world are already working with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi)
"The Net-Zero Standard gives companies a clear blueprint on how to bring their net-zero plans in line with the science, which is non-negotiable in this decisive decade for climate action. Because we are running out of time."
