What We Do

Our Approach

The science is clear – global warming must not exceed 1.5°C above pre-industrial temperatures to avoid the catastrophic impacts of climate change. To achieve this, greenhouse gas emissions must halve by 2030. And yet, neither the scale nor speed of our world’s current climate commitments matches the urgency of the climate crisis.

Reaching the Paris-aligned goals is our north star and we hold ourselves and others to the ambitious actions required to meet this existential challenge.

What We Do

Corporate & Sectoral Research

We specialise in corporate and sectoral analysis on decarbonisation pathways in East Asia and their effectiveness in urgently reducing emissions.

Stakeholder Engagement

We integrate qualitative and quantitative analysis to provide investors and corporations with the insights and recommendations they need to drive high-ambition corporate action.

Policy Analysis

We bring together local and global expertise to advise on the region's corporate and investor action as well as policy that drives market transformation to a net-zero economy.

Areas of work

Improving disclosure and transparency

Accurate, publicly accessible information is key to reducing both operational and financed emissions and is a necessary step in setting appropriate targets to support climate progress. We work to ensure open-access, full-scope disclosure that is in line with the GHG Protocol and TCFD recommendations.

Increasing investor engagement and impact

While 2021 saw a rush of net-zero commitments by asset managers and owners globally, climate engagement in East Asia needs to step up to emulate that of its Western counterparts. We work to call for both local and global investors to play a more active role in driving East Asian corporate ambition.

Promoting and tracking 1.5°C 2030 corporate action plans

Corporations need to step up their emissions reduction efforts to achieve the targets set by their national governments. 2050 long-term targets alone are not enough. We strive to raise corporate commitments focused on 2030 pathways and, where relevant, track implementation to ensure corporations are enabling wider economic and energy system change.
