Low-carbon transition strategy assessment with ACT
Is your company ready for the transition to a low-carbon economy? You are already familiar with TCFD disclosure, CDP reporting, SBT certification. But does your company have a clear roadmap, to move from where you are now, to where you want to go?
Using the international methodology ACT (Assessing Low-Carbon Transition) developed by global non-profit CDP and French environmental agency ADEME, we help you identify and understand the strengths and weaknesses of your low-carbon transition strategy. Throughout the process, we engage in a dialogue with your company, following a robust guiding framework and set of analysis tools, helping you identify improvement opportunities.
Companies going through an ACT Assessment improve the credibility of their decarbonization pledges, with an independent third-party review of their strategy. The outcome of the ACT Assessment, an overall score and a feedback report, can be used internally by your company, or disclosed to your investors and partners – your call.
Service recommended for: Medium to large companies with a certain level of maturity (existence of a low-carbon transition strategy or SBT certification of climate targets)

Independent review of integrated report and ESG report
Environmental disclosure requirements are increasing, globally. In Japan, major companies are now expected to publish information for their investors in English. Shareholders and investors are more and more demanding – in particular on the urgent issue of climate change.
Integrated reports or ESG reports with inappropriate communication in English of your company’s climate plan can put you at risk of losing trust from international investors. Solid, clear, science-based reports give to your current or future investors the readability they need to support your climate goals and long-term competitiveness.
Our team, combining technical expertise in corporate decarbonization, a solid understanding both of global trends and the Japanese markets, and language skills in Japanese and English, can help you identify the weaknesses in your reports, and offers a set of recommendations to address them.
Service recommended for: Medium to large companies exposed to foreign investors, clients and regulators
