When the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi
) put out a call-to-action in 2016, we were eager to respond. As a zero carbon company we wanted to demonstrate our continued commitment by setting an ambitious science-based target. Over 550 companies have committed to setting a target, and we have now joined the 200+ of these who have had targets approved by the SBTI.
In the UK, 99% of all businesses are small-medium enterprises like Carbon Credentials (companies with fewer than 250 employees), but so far, less than 1% of those organisations that have had their targets approved by the SBTI are SMEs.
