LONDON - One in four companies setting science-based targets (SBTs) on climate change are not making them public, according to a new report from sustainability consultants South Pole which is dubbing the trend "green hushing".

South Pole’s annual report, Net Zero and Beyond, surveyed the sustainability leads at more than 1,200 large companies with net zero targets across 12 different countries and multiple sectors.

Nearly all had either set science-based emission reduction targets or planned to within the next 12 months but 25 per cent had no plans to make these public - possibly because of "media scrutiny, NGO critique and the threat of lawsuits", according to the study.
