The Climate Action 100+ Net-Zero Company Benchmark (referred to as the Benchmark) will be used to assess each focus company’s alignment with the key commitment priorities of the initiative. Company scorecards will be published in the first quarter of 2021 based on their publicly disclosed information (e.g. annual reports, financial filings, CDP disclosures).
The Benchmark framework was developed during 2020 with EY and in collaboration with almost 50 signatory investors, investor network experts, and leading climate research and data NGOs, including the Transition Pathway Initiative (TPI).
TPI, supported by its research and data partners the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the London School of Economics (LSE) and FTSE Russell, were selected to conduct the company disclosure research and analysis.
Additionally, Carbon Tracker Initiative and 2 Degrees Investing Initiative have been chosen to analyse recent focus company capital expenditures (CapEX) and output relative to a range of alternative climate change scenarios to provide a third-party assessment. The Benchmark will also include a link to InfluenceMap’s data on corporate climate lobbying practices and individual company assessments.
