About this Event

• How will your city reach its climate goals?

• Does the city’s actions have the necessary impact on emissions?

Today, most cities rely heavily on emissions data to answer such questions. But emissions data comes with several inherent flaws: it is difficult to collect, it comes with a significant time lag, and often lacks precision. Therefore, emissions data has a limited use if we want to know the impact of our policies, or the overall speed of our climate transition.

This webinar will introduce you to a new approach on how to tackle the climate challenge - using transition targets. The method breaks down overarching climate goals into tangible and measurable targets. The approach unlocks valuable data on the actual performance of cities and regions’ climate transition, and provides insights that are actionable in the local context.

During this webinar we will discuss:

• Why measurable targets are fundamental to achieve success in the climate transition

• How transition targets can be used in practice

• The importance of distinguishing targets from actions

• Learnings and insights from cities and regions
