Description

Description Five guiding questions lead to assess company’s alignment with the low-carbon transition to 2050:

1- What is the company planning to do? 2- How is the company planning to get there? 3- What is the company doing at present? 4- What has the company done in the recent past? 5- How do all of these plans and actions fit together?

The resulting ACT rating including a performance score, narrative score and trend score, is key to understanding how ready a business is to transition to a low-carbon world.

Objectives Drive companies' climate actions by providing sectoral methodologies as an accountability framework to assess their low-carbon strategies against relevant decarbonisation pathways.
Activities - developing and implementing methodologies covering all high emitter’s sectors as identified by TCFD (non-financial sectors) and key sectors for transion towards a low carbon economy by 2022.

-engage with the initiative key stakeholders (private sector, financial institutions, public authorities and policy makers, NGOs, other climate adaption and mitigation initiatives, academics) by opening the initiative governance, raising awareness and building capacity. - ACT DDP Project builds a methodology to evaluate and monitor companies' decarbonization strategies from a sectoral, national and bottom-up perspective to increase the collective ambition of reducing greenhouse gas in Mexico and Brazil aligned with the global objective of the Paris agreement https://www.iddri.org/en/project/act-ddp-project

One or two success stories achieved Developed, tested and implemented methodologies for Automobile manufacturing, Electric Utilities, Retail and the Building sector (both Construction and Real Estate).

Comments on indicators and goals Ratings:

a) Performance score from 1 (lowest) to 20 (highest) Indicators: targets, material investment, intangible investment, performance of products, management, suppliers, clients, policy engagement, business model

b) Narrative score from E (lowest) to A (highest) Indicators: business model & strategy, consistency & credibility, reputation, risk
