Addressing Loose Corporate Targets with the SBTi Net Zero Standard

“The Standard, launched at COP26, tackles slippery net zero definitions, inconsistent approaches and reliance on offsets. External third party verification will provide transparency on annual progress against unambiguous criteria and scope for both short term and long term decarbonization targets across the entire value chain.”

Productivity and Performance of Renewable Energy

“Renewable energy has witnessed a sharp growth in the past decade and is a key element of the road to net zero emissions. We need a deeper understanding of both success factors and the challenges to accomplish widespread adoption of renewable energy as a means of ensuring reliable clean energy in the future. Renewable energy is about the productivity and performance of the project and not just installed capacity. For safer, greener and smarter clean energy projects, we need to ensure quality management throughout the project value chain and life cycle. SGS can be your trusted partner to achieve these goals.”
