Managing Energy-sector Climate Risk: The Growing Need for a Standardized Emissions Dataset@weight>
As the climate crisis intensifies, identifying, tracking, and benchmarking GHG emissions has become crucial for companies looking to succeed in today's energy transition landscape. Net-zero emission pledges have gone from niche to mainstream since the 2015 Paris Agreement. S&P Global research shows that in the past three years, the number of countries with net-zero pledges skyrocketed from fewer than 20 to more than 150. But, currently emissions reporting is largely voluntary and the few regulatory frameworks that do exist are not standardized.
Access to comparable, standardized GHG emissions datasets can help investors, corporations and regulators take action to address climate risks. A consolidated emissions dataset would provide the clarity and actionable data critical for the energy transition.
S&P Global's Corporate Emissions Solution provides standardized data and analytics on GHG emissions across the energy value chain and industrial sectors to assess climate risks, evaluate investment decisions, and meet reporting requirements, in line with global climate and sustainability policies and regulations.
