Brief description of the data offering

ICE Emissions and Targets Data can help companies and financial institutions understand the climate risk landscape, meet regulatory requirements and discover climate-related opportunities. 

  • GHG Emissions Data provides a comprehensive time series (from 2010) of Greenhouse Gas Protocol defined Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions covering 5,500 publicly reporting global companies, with modelled data available for 30,000+ companies. 
  • Emission Reduction Targets Data incorporate over 9,000 reported targets covering ~2,500 companies, including targets aligned with the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) temperature scoring methodology. Emission reduction targets data can help financial institutions understand climate transition risk.

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. 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 (currently 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.
