Sustainability Solutions for the Finance Sector
Finance Competence Centre
Being at the heart of global economic activity, the finance sector can play a pivotal role in leading the sustainability journey.
In the financial services industry, emissions are predominantly from Scope 3 activities, in particular related to investments and loans.
In 2020 the industry-led Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) developed the Global GHG Accounting and Reporting Standard for the Financial Industry, an effective tool to quantify financed emissions.
According to the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol, emissions are categorised into three groups:
Scope 1: Direct emissions from owned or controlled sources.
Scope 2: Indirect emissions from the generation of purchased energy.
Scope 3: All other indirect emissions in a company’s value chain.
