C2ES – The AIM Platform: Removing Barriers to Advanced and Indirect Mitigation
An increasing number of Paris-aligned company targets include ambitious commitments to tackle value chain emissions—also known as indirect emissions. However, the current emissions reporting guidance lacks methods to credibly calculate and claim emissions reduction resulting from value-chain investments. Overcoming these barriers is a crucial step for companies to justify significant and necessary mitigation investments. Companies need credible and widely accepted guidance that dictates how they can capture and report the impact of their investments on hard-to-abate emissions outside their operational or financial control.
The Advanced and Indirect Mitigation (AIM) Platform—a partnership of the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES), Neoteric Energy and Climate, and Gold Standard—is an ambitious new initiative that aims to unlock new climate finance opportunities to decarbonize the hardest-to-abate sectors by identifying and removing barriers to value chain mitigation and supporting collective mitigation action.
Come learn about The AIM Platform’s mission and hear about our inaugural initiative, which will convene experts across civil society and the private sector to develop credible approaches to accounting, reporting, and claiming the results of value chain abatement interventions.
