Science-Based Targets for Forest, Land and Agriculture (FLAG) sectors

Join our webinar and business brief launch, where we navigate the complexities of science-based target setting for FLAG sectors. This webinar is a part of our Nordic series "Dilemmas in Science-Based Climate Action".

The forest, land and agriculture (FLAG) sectors play a crucial role in addressing climate change. Many companies will soon be expected to set targets for their emissions associated with FLAG activities. However, target setting and carbon accounting methods for FLAG sectors are still in the early stages of development, and tracking emissions in FLAG sectors is complex.

In this webinar, we aim to navigate these complexities and uncertainties, providing an introduction to the challenges around setting FLAG targets and some recommendations for those companies just starting on the journey. 

As we step through the main sections of the Introductory Briefing, we will:

  • Introduce key aspects of the Science Based Targets initiative’s FLAG target-setting framework, including relevance, eligibility, and methods.
  • Discuss key challenges and provide recommendations on the following: 
    • Carbon accounting
    • Target setting
    • Data collection and emissions factors
    • Value chain engagement
