According to the latest IPCC report, keeping the temperature increase below 1.5°C will mean that global CO2 emissions will have to decrease by 45% from 2010 levels by 2030, and reach zero by 2050.

The event, organized by Factor, has three main objectives: to offer the keys of how to implement the definition of objectives based on science paying special attention to the methodology of work with the facilities, to know the benefits that are obtained by calculating the carbon footprint, as well as to be registered in the Science Based Targets, and to present important cases of success of several Spanish entities of different sectors.
