Normative for finance

Like energy, the capital that financial institutions invest and manage powers business activities around the globe. And those investments generate carbon. 

Across Europe and the UK, new emissions regulations require financial institutions to complete extensive and auditable carbon disclosures. In addition, private and corporate customers have changing expectations for transparency from their bankers and investors. 

Aside from their own disclosures, financial professionals need to understand carbon metrics to assess the climate risk in the loans and investments they make. 


The vast majority of emissions in the financial industry come from investments, but accounting for those emissions is particularly challenging.

Barriers to accurate carbon reporting

Private equity, venture capital, and asset managers struggle with comprehensive and accurate carbon accounting because of the complexity of the reporting process. 

Financial institutions need to collect primary data from a huge variety of assets and investments, and to rigorously calculate the emissions from those assets.

Any carbon accounting solution for finance must include automated data intake and organization, and scientifically-rigorous calculations that are aligned with global reporting frameworks like GHGp and PCAF.
