In this context, at the initiative of 15 member companies (Alstom, Axa, Bouygues, CGG, Generali France, LVMH, Michelin, Schneider Electric, Société Générale, Sodexo, Suez, Thales, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, Vallourec et Véolia), AFEP commissioned the think tank The Shift Project in September 2018 to conduct a study, in order to deliver:
* a mapping of the main energy/climate scenarios publicly available;
* an assessment of the methodological choices made by company stakeholders when analysing companies’ disclosures ;
* recommendations for companies in order to devise their own energy&climate scenarios and to integrate them in their strategies.
The cornerstone of this report’s recommendations is that companies establish their own energy-climate foresight analysis to rebalance the dialogue between economic actors and stakeholders, including extra-financial and credit rating agencies.
The final report of the study was made public on 18 November in Brussels during the conference:
Climate & energy scenario analysis: Shedding light on the “black box”.
After a keynote speech by Mauro Petriccione, Director-General for Climate Action, European Commission, the conference hosted Alain Deckers (Head of Unit Corporate reporting, audit and CRA, DG FISMA, European Commission), Rafael Ramirez (University of Oxford), Carey Evans (BlackRock) and Alice Peyrard (Veolia and member of EFRAG European Lab PTF).
