Capital Markets Facilitated Emissions Methodology
The Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) is pleased to launch the final public consultation on the capital markets facilitated emissions methodology.
PCAF released the discussion paper on capital markets instruments for its initial public consultation in late 2021, mirroring the public consultation process held for the first edition of the PCAF Standard in 2020. The discussion paper aimed to highlight the importance of capital markets to facilitate the climate transition and introduce the concept of facilitated emissions.
It explains the key choices necessary to develop guidelines for facilitated emissions and describes the complex challenges around making those choices. The methodology provides a suggested GHG accounting approach for the facilitation of capital markets activities. This method creates a mechanism that helps provide transparency and accountability.
