For consultation: ACT Generic Methodology Update

Methodology update document

The ACT Generic methodology was first published in 2021 to enable assessing companies which are not covered by available ACT sectoral methodologies.

The methodology, developed by the ACT (Assessing low-Carbon Transition) initiative uses a science-based approach to assess companies’ decarbonisation strategies and associated transition plans.  

To ensure the methodology remains cutting-edge in its ambition, relevance, and comprehensiveness, we have created an updated version for this year, and we are opening it to the public for consultation. 

After the consultation, a new Generic Methodology will be published.

We invite all stakeholders to read the proposed methodology changes and participate in our public consultation by providing feedback.
