[ACT Finance Roadtest | updated drafts]

Following public consultation, ADEME shares its updated draft ACT Finance methodologies :



Contributions from various stakeholders have improved the clarity and consistency of draft methodologies.

The main changes are:

  • more detailed definitions helping to capture the low-carbon and transition shares of portfolios;
  • improved qualitative standards for engagement assessment;
  • unified articulation between lending and capital market activities regarding quantitative aspects of the banking methodology.


The methodologies will now be road-tested with 25 financial institutions: banks, asset managers and asset owners.


Final methodologies and a road-test report will be published in Q4 2023.
