Today, the Initiative Climat International (iCI) launched a brief guide to help facilitate more effective disclosure of GHG emissions between companies and their fiscal sponsors, direct lenders and other debt-holders.
The ultimate objective of the guide is to promote the measurement of GHG emissions, thus improving the transparency of decision-useful climate-related disclosures that too few companies currently produce.
Today, readily available guidance on GHG emissions measurement is complex, impacting its accessibility for senior company executives to implement. This guide aims to address this by providing companies with concise and practical guidance on the foundational steps to measuring and reporting on GHG emissions.
The guide synthesises insights, resources and tools from globally recognised organisations and standards to inform and facilitate key decisions and promote measurement and information sharing. This includes frameworks to measure, report and set reduction targets for GHG emissions, such as the GHG Protocol, the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
The new guide has been developed by iCI’s Private Credit Working Group, co-chaired by ICG and Oak Hill Advisors, two alternative asset managers with diversified private credit businesses.
