Bank as part of a conglomerate

Hi there,
I would need some guidance regarding conglomerates that include banks. E.g. if a conglomerate has set and verified SBTs and now needs to implement them also for their bank. As part of the conglomerate target, scope 3 emissions need to be reduced around 35%. Therefore, the conglomerate thinks the bank should to set a 35% reduction target for their on balance sheet activities.
However, if the bank would set its own target according to the FI guidance, a reduction of 50-60% would likely apply to this part of their portfolio.
Which guidance now prevails? Could you provide me some guidance and maybe examples of similar cases? Thanks for your support.

Targets on FIs’ investment and lending activities may be set using the SDA, Portfolio Coverage, and Temperature Rating methods according to the SBTi FI Near-Term Criteria. An absolute emissions reduction target on FIs’ portfolios is not currently an option.
