The trend shows the speed at which the company has been reducing its emissions intensity in the recent past. Comparing this to the scientific low-carbon benchmark pathway allocated to the company gives an indication of the scale of the change that needs to be made within the company to bring it onto a low-carbon pathway.
Nine of the companies assessed performed optimally on this module (i.e. 100 percent), showing a commitment over time to reducing manufacturing emissions. Conversely, nine companies have the minimum performance on this module (i.e. 0 percent), either by not sharing this data or failing to reduce manufacturing emissions, both of which fail to provide stakeholders confidence in a company’s ability to transition to a low-carbon economy.
