Demonstrating World Energy's Commitment to Reaching Global Net-Zero
World Energy is joining corporate climate action leaders in setting ambitious, science-based emissions reduction targets through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). As the world comes together to address the climate crisis, it is critical to acknowledge the role the private sector will play in achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement. Through this commitment to set science-based emissions reduction targets, World Energy joins other leading companies demonstrating how businesses can meet this challenge. In addition to taking meaningful actions to reduce the company's emissions, as part of this commitment to SBTi, World Energy will publicly report on the company's GHG emissions and progress against targets on an annual basis.
