Large companies are being increasingly questioned by their stakeholders, notably investors, on “their alignment with the objectives of the Paris agreement”.
In this context, at the initiative of 15 member companies (Alstom, Axa, Bouygues, CGG, Generali France, LVMH, Michelin, Schneider Electric, Société Générale, Sodexo, Suez, Thales, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, Vallourec et Véolia), AFEP commissioned the think tank The Shift Project in September 2018 to conduct a study, in order to deliver:
* a mapping of the main energy/climate scenarios publicly available;
* an assessment of the methodological choices made by company stakeholders when analysing companies’ disclosures;
* recommendations for companies in order to devise their own energy&climate scenarios and to integrate them in their strategies.
The cornerstone of this report’s recommendations is that companies establish their own energy-climate foresight analysis to rebalance the dialogue between economic actors and stakeholders, including extra-financial and credit rating agencies.
