ACT Methodologies Roadtest ACT public consultation

ACT value the expertise and opinion of a wide range of stakeholders including companies, NGOs, academics, financial institutions and other relevant experts including interested citizens. Inputs will be key to help ACT develop robust methodologies.

Aluminium, Chemicals, Glass, Pulp & Paper

 

New! To ease the review process, two versions of each methodological document are available :

Short document (~40 pages)

Dedicated to users that are not familiar yet with the ACT initiative​.

To provide focused feedback on:

  • ACT rating system – Weightings​
  • Scope & Boundaries ​
  • Low-carbon scenarios​
  • Quick overview of KPIs​
Full document (> 100 pages)

Enables an in-depth reading with more complete sections​.

To provide feedback with a holistic view of the ACT approach:

  • Literature review – key elements of the sector​
  • Details on the emissions reduction trajectories​
  • Assessment construction and required data included in the KPIs presentation​
  • Rationale of the weighting system​

 

We invite you to share insights through ScribeHub which is the place for you to share your knowledge and written feedback on the ACT Assessment indicators and methodology. We welcome your insight to help us ensure the methodology and indicators are indicative of the actions business must take in order to contribute to a low-carbon transition aligned with the Paris Agreement.

Metal SectorAgriculture & Agrofood methodology

Status: close

The land sector is responsible for 10-12 Gt CO2e yr-1 of net GHG emissions – approximately a quarter of global GHG emissions. Half of these are driven by agriculture, while the rest derive from land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF). The largest contributions from agriculture arise from enteric fermentation, manure from ruminant livestock production, crop-related fertilization practices and soil GHG emissions. In addition, some 5% of emissions related to food production come after the farm gate, up to but not including retail. Therefore, it is clear that in order to decarbonise the Agriculture and Agrifood sector, the largest GHG emissions reduction will need to be achieved at the agricultural production phase.

Timeline: consultation was open until 6th January 2021.

Metal Sector Iron & Steel

Status: close

Among heavy industries, the Iron and Steel sector ranks first when it comes to CO2 emissions, and second when it comes to energy consumption. Steel production is highly energy- and emissions-intensive, accounting for around 8% of global energy demand and 7% (2.6 Gt CO2) of total emissions from the energy system. The greater the number of buildings, infrastructure, transport means, boats and industrial equipment, the greater the use of Steel! Global demand for Steel is projected to increase by more than a third through to 2050 according to IEA.

Timeline: consultation was open until 30th November 2020.
