CO2 emissions have increased by 1000% during the last century. It is critical that we reverse this pattern.
Carbon accounting has become a must for organizations mindful of the climate impact of their activities. However, practices in accounting and disclosing GHG emissions are different from one company to another and global emissions are still growing. We take a holistic view of a company’s operational impacts and dependencies, as well as of its supply chain. The ultimate goal is to drive action by companies and put them on a 2°C compatible pathway.
The ACT – Assessing low-Carbon Transition® initiative assesses how ready an organization is to transition to the low-carbon economy using a future-oriented, sector specifïc methodology. It is the natural next step to bring accountability to the growing number of actions that organizations are taking to tackle climate change.
Since the pilot project launched in 2015 by the founders – ADEME and CDP – ACT has received the backing of companies, investors and government departments. ACT is a joint voluntary initiative of the UNFCCC secretariat Global Climate Agenda (visit ACT on the NAZCA portal).
