The ACT assessments are generated using two methodologies: 1) The ACT Electricity methodology for electric utilities companies 2) The ACT Generic methodology (updated publication coming soon) for capital goods companies.

The overall assessment score based on the ACT methodology will consist of performance, narrative and trend scores:

  • The performance score – a number from 1 (lowest) to 20 (highest) represents a company’s performance across key levers for the low-carbon transition.
  • The narrative score – a letter from A (highest) to E (lowest) – represents a company’s state of alignment with the Paris Agreement goals.
  • The trend score – “+” for improving, “=” for remaining the same, or “-” for worsening – signals the near-term movement in the company’s alignment with the low-carbon economy.
