Information for Companies
The simplest way for a company to improve its position in the ET Carbon Rankings is to publish clear Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions data according to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.
In order to enhance a company’s position in the ET Carbon Rankings, ET Index Research recommends the following:
- Companies publish emissions data for Scope 1, 2 and 3 in a clear and accessible manner, either on the company website, in the sustainability report, integrated report, annual report or across all of the sources mentioned.
- Companies should ensure this information has been externally verified to a reasonable standard of assurance, ideally against a specific GHG standard such as ISO 14064-3, but at least against a general assurance standard such as ISAE 3000.
- Companies should calculate and publish comprehensive Scope 3 emissions data according to the GHG protocol Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Accounting and Reporting Standard. This includes explaining and justifying any Scope 3 categories which have not been included. The latest information on verification of Scope 3 can be found at the GHG Protocol and ISO websites.
- Make sure that any verification statement is publicly available and is included in the company sustainability report, integrated report or annual report or can be found easily on the company’s website. All materials must be reported in English in order to be considered.
