About the Alliance
The Belgian Alliance for Climate Action is a neutral, national initiative that invites organisations to take the lead on climate action by setting science-based targets.
It is our mission to support you on your climate trajectory, by facilitating knowledge exchange, creating networking opportunities and enhance the visibility of undertaken climate actions.

- Get direct access to a library of practical tools and resources to support you on your climate trajectory
- Learn how to build a business case for sustainability and implement your plans
- Partner with major industry players and innovative start-ups to reach your climate goals
- Build on our neutral platform to catalyse climate action in your supply chain
- Connect with similar international initiatives
Who can join?
We welcome all members of The Shift who want to step up their climate game and truly make a difference, whether you already have experience with climate action (and maybe even set Science Based Targets) or you are just starting out.
It is our goal to make of the Alliance a strong and diverse community of ambitious Belgian organisations, regardless of size or sector. We all share the same goal: tackling climate change.

BACA behind the scenes
As co-coordinator on the The Shift-side, Jonas will most likely be the first person you bump into when approaching BACA territory. He'll introduce you into the ropes of the Alliance and will remain your go-to force when you have questions related to membership or the general course the Alliance is heading as a community.
Reine completes the coordination-half on WWF-side. There's little she doesn't know about Science Based Targets and all related technicalities. She's on top of the ins and outs of (inter-)national climate policy and keeps her finger on the pulse of any development on that front. This puts her in an ideal position to account for BACA's outreach work, including interactions with Belgium's civil society and political field. For any questions related to the above, do not hesitate to get in touch.
Impactful climate action asks for an evolving communication strategy. That's where Sofie comes in. She keeps the public at height about relevant climate news, whether it comes from member organisations or other credible sources, in Belgium and beyond. She also lends a hand to BACA members seeking support with their climate communication endeavours.
We are eager to present to you the new and - if we say it ourselves - exciting BACA calendar for 2022.
An increasing number of businesses are setting science-based targets to reduce their carbon emissions. Get insight into what SBTs are, why they're relevant to companies with sincere climate ambitions and how you can participate.
