"Standardized accounting methods for emissions and removals are critical to calculate a portfolio’s carbon intensity and advance toward net zero targets. However, such global standards don’t exist yet, which means the choice of carbon metrics is a source of uncertainty and risk."
"A good emissions data management will prove essential: CBRE, the world’s largest manager of commercial buildings, set emissions reductions targets in December 2020. Since then its emissions rose by 500%, but the issue may be, in part, due to real data replacing initial estimates."
“A notable example is the implementation of a carbon tax in the Canadian province of British Columbia since 2008, which has also been celebrated globally as a textbook example of carbon taxation in a sub-state actor, as it covers approximately 70% of provincial GHG emissions.”
