We Mean Business Coalition: Core Initiatives

Companies of all sizes are taking action through We Mean Business Coalition and partner initiatives to set targets, send demand signals and drive down emissions.  

To track the scale and breadth of companies taking action, the Coalition aggregates commitment data from core initiatives within our network. See the aggregated list of companies taking action

Science-based Targets initiative

The Science-based Targets initiative (SBTi) develops standards, tools and guidance which allow companies to set greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions targets in line with science. Its target dashboard shows companies and financial institutions that have set targets or have committed to developing targets. We Mean Business Coalition is a founding partner of SBTi, along with CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). SBTi is an integral part of the global climate architecture and the Coalition have been actively supporting its work to help companies commit to and set net-zero targets for nearly a decade.

SME Climate Hub

The SME Climate Hub is an initiative of the We Mean Business Coalition, created in partnership with the Exponential Roadmap Initiative and the UN Climate Change High Level Champion’s Race to Zero campaign. Through its free tools and resources, the SME Climate Hub enables small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to make a climate commitment, take action and measure their progress towards emissions reductions. The SME Climate Commitment is the official pathway for SMEs to join the global Race to Zero campaign.
