Insights on the Use of Emissions Scenarios in Assessing Corporate Climate Risk and GHG Goal Setting

V&E partner Margaret Peloso presented at the “Insights on the Use of Emissions Scenarios in Assessing Corporate Climate Risk and GHG Goal Setting” webinar hosted by Edison Electric Institute on July 29, 2020.

The webinar highlighted recently released research by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) – Review of 1.5°C and Other Newer Global Emissions Scenarios: Insights for Company and Financial Climate Low-Carbon Transition Risk Assessment and Greenhouse Gas Goal Setting – that strives to enable grounded discussion and decisions by providing a scientific basis for company climate risk assessment and goal setting.  This research update assesses 1.5°C and other newer global GHG emissions scenarios from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and International Energy Agency (IEA) and derives insights for company low-carbon transition risk assessment and GHG goal setting.
