Consultation Webinar: Temperature Scoring Method Development for Companies and Investment Portfolios
The use of temperature metrics is becoming increasingly prevalent for measuring corporate and financial sector climate ambition. The success of the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) has led to a rapid increase in companies with approved science-based targets. Meanwhile, a growing number of companies outside the SBTi are claiming alignment to the long-term temperature goals set out in the Paris Agreement.
During this webinar, SBTi staff will present a new methodology that enables the temperature scoring of public targets at both a company and a portfolio level. This webinar will provide further details on the methods and applications and initiate a public call for feedback.
Topics to be discussed include deriving temperature scores from corporate GHG targets, defining default scores for non-disclosing companies, and weighting options for portfolio aggregation.
This webinar is relevant for financial institutions, climate scientists, consultants, and companies.
