The change has already begun and action is gaining pace. Over a thousand organizations worldwide are leading the zero-carbon transformation by setting emissions reduction targets grounded in climate science through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
Near-term targets outline how organizations will reduce their emissions, usually over the next 5-10 years. These targets galvanize the action required for significant emissions reductions to be achieved by 2030. Near-term targets are also a requirement for companies wishing to set net-zero targets.
Temperature alignment indicates the degree of global temperature increase compared to preindustrial levels companies are aligned with, based on their scope 1 and 2 targets, in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement. Temperature alignment is identified in the dashboard with one of the following values: 1.5C, well-below 2C, and 2C.
Please note: Temperature alignment is only provided for most companies' scope 1 and 2 targets. The exception is auto manufacturers, which also have scope 3 category 11 temperature alignment. You can find out more here.You can find answers to common questions about the dashboard and data in our FAQs below.
All scope 1 and 2 targets are classified under one of three categories: 2C, well-below 2C and 1.5C. The SBTi's assessment of a company's target does not include a classification of scope 3 targets. As of July 15th 2022 ,the SBTi will only accept target submissions of scope 1 and 2 targets that are in line with a 1.5C trajectory.
Near-term targets outline how organizations will reduce their emissions over the next 5-10 years. These targets galvanize the action required for significant emissions reductions to be achieved by 2030. These reductions are critical to not exceed the global emissions budget. Near-term targets are also a prerequisite for companies wishing to set net-zero targets.
Net-zero targets encompass both near and long-term targets. Companies wishing to set net-zero targets under the Corporate Net-Zero Standard have both near- and long-term targets validated by the SBTi.
The targets package is a Make-like pipeline tool for Statistics and data science in R. With targets, you can maintain a reproducible workflow without repeating yourself. targets learns how your pipeline fits together, skips costly runtime for tasks that are already up to date, runs only the necessary computation, supports implicit parallel computing, abstracts files as R objects, and shows tangible evidence that the results match the underlying code and data.
Unlike most pipeline tools, which are language agnostic or Python-focused, the targets package allows data scientists and researchers to work entirely within R. targets implicitly nudges users toward a clean, function-oriented programming style that fits the intent of the R language and helps practitioners maintain their data analysis projects.
This manual is a step-by-step user guide to targets. The most important chapters are the walkthrough, help guide, and debugging guide. Subsequent chapters explain how to write code, manage projects, utilize high-performance computing, transition from drake, and more. See the documentation website for most other major resources, including installation instructions, links to example projects, and a reference page with all user-side functions.
A pipeline toolkit for Statistics and data science in R, the 'targets' package brings function-oriented programming to 'Make'-like declarative pipelines. 'targets' orchestrates a pipeline as a graph of dependencies, skips steps that are already up to date, runs the necessary computation with optional parallel workers, abstracts files as R objects, and provides tangible evidence that the results are reproducible given the underlying code and data. The methodology in this package borrows from GNU 'Make' (2015, ISBN:978-9881443519) and 'drake' (2018, ).
The Digital Decade policy programme 2030 sets up an annual cooperation cycle to achieve the common objectives and targets. This governance framework is based on an annual cooperation mechanism involving the Commission and Mem
