Financed Emissions

Event Name: Challenges in Estimating Financed Emissions: Special Focus on Data Quality

Date: 5th of December

Time: 15:00 – 16:00

Date: Green-Zone ENBD Pavillion

Description:

Financial Institutions (FIs) globally are assessing the emissions resulting from their lending and other operations. However, the precision of these estimates hinges largely on the quality of the input data. The Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) provides a Financed Emissions Standard, serving as a framework to gauge and enhance data quality progressively. The highest data quality tiers involve direct collection of carbon footprint data from a diverse set of clients like SMEs and corporates, each presenting its unique set of challenges. How do FIs plan to tackle these issues? What are the prerequisites in terms of data and software? Join us in this panel discussion as representatives from PCAF and signatory financial deliberate on the current scenario and chart the way forward.
