Setting ambitious corporate climate targets

Climate change is the greatest challenge facing society. As the world uses more energy and resources, dramatic action is required to limit and reduce the risks posed by climate change.

Governments from across the globe responded by signing the Paris Agreement which expects countries to adjust how they operate to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees by the end of the century. Some governments, including the UK, are actively considering whether to become 'net-zero carbon' by 2050. Businesses have a hugely important role to play too and are increasingly looking at setting a target to reduce emissions that would see their operations and products reduce in line with the Paris Agreement.

techUK held a workshop, with presentations from Professor Mike Berners Lee from Small World Consulting and Andie Stephens from the Carbon Trust, looking at how tech firms can set a robust and ambitious carbon target based on the latest science.
