Carbon target – set it like you mean it (Wellington)

Carbon targets are no longer a nice to have. They are a license to operate! Carbon targets increase resilience and deliver tangible business value: 79% of companies setting targets report it has boosted their brand reputation, 63% say it’s driven innovation and 52% state investor confidence has been boosted.

WWF-New Zealand and thinkstep ANZ invite you to a hands-on workshop which will explore through local case studies, a panel discussion and an interactive session the following topics:

• Business drivers and investor requirements around carbon targets

• Practical approaches to setting an ambitious target

• Scope 3 challenges and opportunities

• Absolute versus intensity based targets

• Approaches that are available for setting a science-based target

• Alternatives to setting a formally approved science-based target

Participants will have the opportunity to share their experience and learn directly from technical and industry experts. Through a practical exercise, companies will identify barriers to setting meaningful carbon reduction targets, the adoption of a science-based target, as well as levers and tactics to overcome these barriers.

This is a free event but we will charge a No-show fee of $20 if cancelled less than 48 hours before the event.

Our speakers include:

  • Sam Bridgman, Sustainability Specialist, NZ Post
  • Kaapua Smith, Head of Sustainability, Contact Energy
  • David Tong, Climate Change Programme Manager, WWF-New Zealand
  • Barbara Nebel, CEO, thinkstep ANZ
