Overview of the project

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing humankind. Its consequences are already affecting societies globally, on a daily basis. Scientific predictions warn us that the next ten years are crucial: we need act now and we better do it in a way that makes sense. That is why the Belgian Alliance for Climate Action calls upon Belgian organisations to take their climate ambitions seriously, by choosing the path of science-based targets. By setting science-based emission reduction targets, our members calculate how much and how fast they need to decrease their carbon footprint to avoid the worst effects of climate change.


Increasing the amount of organisations setting science-based targets to reduce emissions and tackle climate change.

The Shift is a non-profit organisation that acts as the Belgian sustainability community. Our network unites a wide range of companies, civil society, public and academic actors around one common goal: actively work together towards a more sustainable economy and society. As a unique multi-actor community, our mission is to challenge our members to find innovative ways of carrying out projects with each other which contribute to sustainable development. Members are offered a trusting environment for this, where they can enter into dialogue and inspire each other in developing sustainable business models that can make a difference to present and future generations. In order to do so, we are driven by three forces: connect. commit. change.
