CDP and Breakthrough Energy are combining their expertise to develop a new framework that will help quantify the climate value of investments that develop technologies critical to a net-zero future.
CDP’s model of disclosure, insight, and action drives the acceleration of solutions, and we have seen through our involvement with the SBTi and other partnerships, that companies that have set ambitious targets can struggle to meet them. This is often because of an absence of options for action including technology solutions. Breakthrough Energy aims to accelerate the availability and application of key technologies that will help businesses to fully decarbonize. Emerging Climate Technology Framework will help quantify how a company’s investments contribute to accelerating the deployment of that technology to scale and help leaders explain to their investors and customers what they are doing to decarbonize their value chains.Nicolette Bartlett, Executive Director, CDP
The framework will enable companies to assess their climate impact and receive recognition for investing in activities that will eliminate the sources of emissions permanently and over the long term.
It will help quantify how a company’s investments contribute to overall emission reduction needs and help leaders explain to their investors and customers what they’re doing to decarbonize their business model.
Companies that report through CDP are encouraged to provide feedback on the new ECT Framework. Find out how to participate in our consultation.
We invite companies who are involved in any value chain stage of these technologies to express their interest in testing the framework by completing the form below.
CDP and Breakthrough Energy are working in partnership on this project. Your form submission will be shared between both organizations.
