SBTs – Session 2

Bord Bia hosted the second in a series of five webinars designed to enable large scale Origin Green member companies to accelerate the development and implementation of ambitious and data-driven Science Based Targets (SBTs). Science Based Targets are fast becoming the “quality label” of climate action and are critical for Irish food, drink, and horticulture companies to demonstrate credibility to their customers, investors, employees, and regulators. However, the process for setting SBTs can be complex, and delivery on them can be challenging for teams with limited capacity. The methodologies, standards, and solutions for setting and delivering on SBTs are evolving and will require frequent review by Origin Green member companies. 

Session 2 demonstrated how to set a baseline to enable the accurate measurement of emissions – a key building block for setting a SBT.

We heard from Accenture’s Mauricio Bermudez Neubauer about the growing demand for accurate emissions data. Not only is accurate measurement essential to satisfy stakeholders and an evolving regulatory environment, but it is also a key lever to unlock enterprise value.
