Similar revolutions for industry in the circular economy, or from electrification in transport fleets, will yield equivalent impacts…Also encouraging is that businesses are finding their own pathways…[498 companies have so far committed to using science-based targets to understand how they can limit emissions, while 151 have set targets that meet the criteria…” click here for more
