Emissions Benchmarking Tool

Inform strategic decisions regarding emissions risk management via competitive benchmarking, portfolio analysis and economic impact assessment.


Emissions targets set under the 2015 Paris Agreement – and new pledges under the Glasgow Climate Pact – have far-reaching and material implications for the long-term corporate strategies of every player in the energy and extractive industries.

Companies in these sectors are coming under pressure from investors and other stakeholders to disclose information around the potential climate-related risks to their businesses. And, with the potential of carbon costs emerging in a range of countries, scrutiny of corporate emissions footprints and value at risk will continue to increase.

The Emissions Benchmarking Tool provides transparency at the asset and corporate level and across the value chain to enable a comprehensive assessment of emissions-related risks and opportunities.
