Avoided emissions

  • Identify avoided emissions potential within your portfolio 
  • Sector-specific methodology 

Net zero analysis

  • Conduct net zero and alignment exercises using NGFS, IPCC and IEA decarbonization pathways
  • Projections to 2050 

Target setting – Paris alignment 

  • Access current alignment to your chosen climate scenario 
  • Identify carbon reduction targets at portfolio and sector level to help achieve chosen climate objective 

Temperature analysis

Where and how do you source your data?

ICE has its own emissions and temperature targets data collection process, which is carried out by its team of ESG data researchers trained in GHG emissions reporting. Researchers collect data from public sources including but not limited to annual reports, financial statements and sustainability reports. The companies identified for emissions data analysis (~5,500) is reviewed annually to ensure comprehensive coverage. The data for each company is independently analysed by two ESG data researchers before going through broader quality assurance and outlier analysis. A component of the analysis includes assessing the completeness of the data reported by each company.
