We are using the portfolio coverage approach. I am about to reach out to several companies about setting SBT, and I was wondering whether you have any engagement material you could share? Perhaps some responses to common pushbacks from companies or most relevant investor questions to ask?
I have recently received a response from a company saying that SBTi effectively assumes a linear intensity reduction or intensity convergence between the most recent year and 2050, and that it is not possible for a company like theirs due to the rapid growth of its business/capacity. They therefore expect that emissions will continue to increase until 2025 and gradually come down thereafter.
How would you suggest I engage meaningfully with the company about this?
