Assess your strategy

[mysqloption len=1000000]

From targets to actions to disclosure. Is your transition plan aligned?

Over the past 15 years, carbon accounting has become a must for organizations mindful of the climate impact of their activities. Indeed, many of them voluntarily disclose their GHG emissions and management practices. However, accounting and GHG emissions disclosure practices can differ from one company to another, and global emissions are still growing despite companies’ commitments.

In parallel, new concepts, needs and tools have emerged that should help reverse this trend: Science-Based Targets, Carbon Management System, carbon pricing, new metrics for investors and so on. 

The strength of the ACT initiative is that it adopts a holistic approach to assessing how ready a company is to transition to a low-carbon economy: the level of ambition of the climate strategy is analysed against the low-carbon benchmark relevant for the company, as well as the actions that the company effectively takes in response to this strategy.

A company’s ACT assessment report supports dialogue with shareholders, provides relevant inputs for climate reporting consistent with TCFD recommendation and NFRD directive and brings credibility to company’s climate communication.

Understand the approach

This e-learning is made of 14  videos and was developed during the pilot phase of the ACT initiative (2018). It includes key aspects to understand the ACT approach as well as an overview of the first three developed methodologies for the Automotive Manufacturing, Electric Utilities and Retail sectors.

ACT Assessment methodologies and summaries

The reporting boundaries of the ACT methodologies for a given sector shall be determined by the sector’s most significant emissions sources, according to the principle of Relevance. These significant emissions sources can be located all along the value chain of the organization. This means that both direct and indirect (value chain) emissions shall be included when relevant.
