In 2015, in the lead up to COP21, WWF, CDP, UN Global Compact and World Resources Institute launched the Science Based Targets initiative, to encourage companies to set greenhouse gas emission reduction targets in line with climate science.
In 2016, an Australian Science Based Targets Community of Practice was launched to support Australian businesses in setting and implementing science based targets. The GCNA supports the CoP which is led by WWF and CDP. The first meeting was held in August 2016.
