Join the Methodologies Development
Understand the alignment of your low-carbon strategy with the transition required for your sector.
ADEME and CDP are developing ACT methodologies for the following sectors: Aluminium, Chemicals, Glass, Pulp & Paper.
You can input in the development of the assessment methodology in your sector by joining the Technical Working Group. Whether you are a company or a stakeholder from one of these sectors, or from their value chain, your expertise is welcome to create a robust methodology.
Watch the recorded webinar to understand the benefits, timeline and requirements of the project.
ACT Aluminium, Chemicals, Glass, Pulp &Paper
This video is the recorded webinar delivered on the 15th October 2020.
Take part in the public consultation and pilot test the methodologies
You can contribute to the final stages of development of the Aluminium, Chemicals, Glass and Pulp & Paper methodologies.
- If you are a company or a stakeholder in these sectors or in their value chain, your input on the methodologies during the public consultation is sought to ensure their robustness and appropriateness.
- Companies are invited to pilot test the methodology through a free ACT assessment, including support from a dedicated analyst, which will start in Sept 2021.
Join the webinars (registration links below) to understand the benefits, timeline and requirements of the ACT methodologies’ public consultation and pilot test. To receive the recording, please register to the webinar.
ACT value the expertise and opinion of a wide range of stakeholders including companies, NGOs, academics and other relevant experts including interested citizens. Inputs will be key to help ACT develop a robust methodology.
Agriculture & Agrofood methodology
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.
Iron & Steel
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.
