Net Zero Company Benchmark

Assessing the world's largest corporate greenhouse gas emitters on their net zero transition

The Climate Action 100+ Net Zero Company Benchmark assesses the performance of focus companies against the initiative’s three high-level goals: emissions reduction, governance, and disclosure on and implementation of net zero transition plans. Four sets of company assessments against the Benchmark have been released since March 2021.

The Benchmark is not a disclosure mechanism or database itself. Rather, it is an evaluation tool for investor engagement that can be used by investors, all of whom will have differing mandates and starting points together with considerations of jurisdiction, regulation and best practice, from which they make their own decisions. Investors always act independently, including with respect to investment decisions and voting.

 

What’s Coming Up in 2024?  

The CA100+ Benchmark assessments are updated annually in September and October of each year. As part of their research process the TPI Centre provides an opportunity for companies to provide feedback on their preliminary Disclosure Framework assessments throughout an open review period.

This year, the deadline for companies’ public documents being published AND flagged to TPI via the feedback process is 9th June 2024. For more information relating to the 2024 CA100+ Benchmark framework, please download the below overview:

The Benchmark draws on distinct analytical methodologies and datasets from public and self-disclosed data from companies, categorised into two types of indicators: 

  • Disclosure Framework Indicators, which evaluate the adequacy of corporate disclosure; 
  • Alignment Assessments, which evaluate the alignment of company actions with the Paris Agreement goals. 

The Disclosure Framework is assessed by the Transition Pathway Initiative Global Climate Transition Centre and FTSE Russell, an LSEG business. Alignment Assessments are provided by the Carbon Tracker Initiative, InfluenceMap and the Rocky Mountain Institute. 

By accessing the Benchmark, you agree to be bound by the data usage terms and conditions and company review and redress processes.
