BACA Year 1 Agenda
An overview of the Belgian Alliance for Climate Action’s programme during its first year
As illustrated in the visual below, we will host an event roughly every three months, on a topic in line with the guiding theme of that quarter. These guiding themes explore the 5 steps each organisation will be taking when engaging with science-based targets (or any sustainability agenda in general): Educate & Contextualise, Make the Business Case, Calculate Your Footprint, Set Targets and Implement Solutions. From 2022 onwards, we will also address the specific challenges related to Scope 3 emissions and offer support with onboarding your supply-chain partners.
Apart from these so-called ‘anchor’ events, which will be organised by The Shift & WWF, we invite all members to take the lead in organising workshops that explore a specific topic in depth. Examples could be sustainable finance, aiming for a 1,5°C rather than a 2°C temperature increase, or ways to communicate the SBT journey to your stakeholders. We also encourage members to set up sector-specific roundtables, focusing on the financial, construction, agricultural or transport sector, for example.
Of course, the BACA team will still coordinate these more informal events, but we hope to see many of you proactively suggest topics and connect with other members to expand this agenda.
Don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to host a session on a topic you think might be interesting for the other members of the Alliance.
