How to join
Do you want to take impactful climate action, but you don’t know where to start? Or do you simply want to step up your climate game and inspire others to choose the same path? Then it is time to BACA!
Let's get to know each other
If you don’t find the answer you are looking for, or if you just want to get at it and become a member, don’t hesitate to schedule a 1-on-1 with BACA coordinator Jonas. This will allow you to take a first peak at what the Alliance can mean for your organisation.
Set science-based emission reduction targets
By signing the Alliance’s pledge, you agree to explore the science-based targets methodology as a way to determine how much and how fast your organisation needs to decarbonise for it to help prevent the worst impacts of climate change.
From here on, you have up to 12 months to get acquainted with the science-based targets methodology and to officially commit to setting your own targets.
Depending on whether you are a large company, an SME, NGO or academic institution, the target definition and validation stage will range between 1 to 3 years.
For more info, have a look at the BACA Membership Protocol.
Become an active member
Once a BACA member, you will be invited to attend online and in-person workshops, seminars and panel discussions, where you get to discover relevant new tools and technologies.
Through exchange of information and experiences as a community, you'll develop a business case for science-based targets as well as a strategy towards reaching your own targets.
All the while, we'll help make sure the world is aware of your commitment.
We also count on you to reach out to your network, including your supply chain and other business partners and encourage them to align their operations in ways that are climate proof.
Together, we create a nationwide movement of climate frontrunners.
