The Assessing low-Carbon Transition initiative

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).

Ademe

Here at ADEME - The French Agency for Ecological Transition - we are firmly committed to fighting global warming and the depletion of our natural resources. On all fronts, we mobilise citizens, economic actors and territories towards a fairer, more harmonious, low carbon and resource-efficient society. Whatever the field - energy, circular economy, food, mobility, air quality, adaptation to climate change, soils, etc. - we advise, facilitate and help finance many projects, from research to solutions sharing. At every level, our expertise and forecasting capacities serve to guide and inform public policies. ADEME is a public agency under the joint authority of the Ministry for an Ecological Transition and the Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Innovation.

Founder

CDP

CDP is a global non-profit that drives companies and governments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests. Voted number one climate research provider by investors and working with institutional investors with assets of over US$106 trillion, we leverage investor and buyer power to motivate companies to disclose and manage their environmental impacts.

Partners

World Benchmarking Alliance

WBA develops in close collaboration with its Alliance a series of benchmarks assessing 2,000 of the world’s most influential companies, ranking and measuring them on their contributions to the SDGs. This information will be freely available to everyone. Investors, governments, civil society, individuals and the companies themselves will be empowered. The Climate and Energy Benchmark of the World Benchmarking Alliance (WBA) measures the readiness of companies to transition to a low-carbon economy, using the future-oriented ACT methodologies. The benchmark tracks the keystone companies in the highest emitting sectors, identified through extensive consultation and research, including on the industry groups included in the TCFD recommendations. You can read more about the Climate and Energy Benchmark here and the WBA here.
