Carbon Accounting and Emissions Liability Management

Main content start

As governments, investors and corporations move from signing to implementing net zero pledges, cracks have emerged in the data sources, tools and frameworks that have carried net zero to its voluntary pinnacle. In order to traverse from voluntary to compliance activities, and to move from billions to trillions decarbonization investments, it will be necessary to evolve current practice. Our research and analysis aims to offer guidance for regulators developing disclosure standards and insights for investors and executives committed to implementing net zero pledges.

SFI is actively building a new framework for climate action: Emissions Liability Management (ELM). ELM builds on greenhouse gas emissions accounting and internalizes the externality of emissions. ELM drives large-scale investment in decarbonization and carbon removal by creating clear and consistent obligations and efficient price discovery.
