Ipieca has released a members' only awareness briefing, The role of scenario analysis in climate reporting. Recently, there has been an increasing focus on the use of scenario analysis as a tool to aid corporate disclosure of climate-related risks and opportunities (for example, the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) or the proposed 2018 CDP questionnaire).
The 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a common global framework for navigating the world's most urgent economic, social, and environmental challenges. While governments have the primary responsibility to prioritize, coordinate and implement efforts to meet the SDGs, there is wide recognition that the private sector and civil society will play critical roles in the implementation of national plans.
Ipieca launches a new report -GHG emissions and cost of carbon abatement for light-duty road vehicles- a compare and contrast analysis of three comprehensive and independent studies published in the United States and Europe. Measures to lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are being deployed around the world to reduce the risks posed by climate change. This report assesses a wide range of current and future vehicle/fuel pathways, including costs and complete lifecycle GHG emissions.
