How to use
The ACT Framework explains the principles for developing an ACT sectoral methodology, which were set based on experiences of similar processes, and existing best practice of the work done by the Global Initiative for Sustainability Ratings (GISR), ISEAL alliance credibility principles, and ISO development principles. The Framework also explains the methodology implementation principles, which consider GRI, IIRC, SASB, Arista 3.0, and the GHG Protocol principles . It includes requirements, rationales and guidance for assessment and rating for all sectors. It enables a deeper understanding of the underlying architecture and reasoning behind the ACT approach; however, it does not provide the details required to understand how individual sectors will be assessed under ACT. It is intended to be used in conjunction with the ACT sector methodologies to supplement them and give the necessary background to their development.
ACT Financial Institutions Engagement Charter
The ACT Charter Engagement states all the benefits, both for the ACT initiative and the signatory including tailored training and tools licences, in committing to champion the cause of decarbonization. Central to the low carbon transition issues, ACT is a tool that provides financial actors with standardized information on companies’ decarbonisation strategies and enables them to analyse the transition risks that may hinder companies profitability. ACT responds to the need for corporate and Financial Institutions to disclose more information about their low carbon strategy and more globally about extra-financial data. ACT can be used as a tool to better conform with existing regulation in France (Art 173) and international requirements (TCFD) as well as with the coming ones in EU (Commission action plan on sustainable finance).
ACT SECTOR METHODOLOGIES DEVELOPMENT
The ACT Guidelines are for ACT methodology developer specifically those individuals in charge of Technical Working Groups (TWG) or called upon to draft sections or contribute to the work of the TWG. The document covers the three phases of an ACT sector methodology development. They expand the principles set out in the ACT Framework to the development of new ACT sector methodologies. The development of an ACT sector methodology implies the production of a detailed methodological document and the associated tools including the ACT questionnaire to calculate the indicators and ratings.
Prefiguration study ACT Step by Step
As the vast majority of businesses have not yet integrated the upcoming low-carbon transition into their strategies, many of them are looking for guidance and support to do so. This prefiguration study was carried out in this context, with the objective of designing the draft version of an ACT Step by Step model.
