In Brief

About the project

Increased global awareness on climate change and climate protection guidelines motivate more and more companies to set and measure emission reduction targets. However, when companies focus exclusively on CO2 savings, too little attention is paid to other key resources. Hence, companies wanting to protect other global commons besides the climate need additional measures and targets to track and verify their environmental footprint in terms of e.g., biodiversity, water, and land use. The Land Hub division of the Science Based Targets Network (SBTN) is developing a methodology linking climate protection, and sustainable development goals to land use. Practical indicators will enable interested companies to measure the impact of their corporate activities on land. Based on this assessment, companies will be able to set realistic targets for reducing land consumption and their ecological footprint on land.
