The Climate Action 100+ Net-Zero Company Benchmark (referred to as the Benchmark) assesses the performance of focus companies against the initiative’s three high-level goals: emissions reduction, governance, and disclosure. The benchmark helps investor signatories evaluate company ambition and action in tackling climate change.
The Benchmark draws on distinct analytical methodologies and data-sets, to provide investors and other stakeholders with a robust tool to facilitate focus company engagement and action.
159 focus list companies are included in the first set of assessments (published in March 2021). Eight companies (Grupo Argos SA, Grupo México, Incitec Pivot, Oil Search, Orica, Petróleos Mexicanos – PEMEX, Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Aramco), and UltraTech Cement Ltd) have not been assessed in the first iteration of the benchmark given they were added to the Climate Action 100+ focus list in November 2020. These companies will be included in the next assessment cycle.
