The Heavy industries Benchmark 2024 presents a ranking of 91 keystone heavy industries companies based on an Accelerate Climate Transition (ACT) assessment and a social assessment comprising Core Social and Just Transition Indicators.

The ACT assessments measure the companies’ degree of alignment to the low-carbon transition, in line with the 1.5°C Paris Agreement temperature goal. The social assessments measure whether the companies are transitioning in a just and equitable way.

Details of how WBA integrates the two assessments to calculate the total score can be found in the WBA Heavy industries 2024 methodology report.
