Transition Pathway Initiative

The Transition Pathway Initiative

The Transition Pathway Initiative is an asset owner-led initiative, supported by asset managers and owners with over £2 trillion assets under management.  The initiative assesses how companies are preparing for the transition to a low-carbon economy. It:

  • Evaluates and tracks the quality of companies’ management of their greenhouse gas emissions and of risks and opportunities related to the low-carbon transition.
  • Evaluates how companies’ future carbon performance would compare to the international targets and national pledges made as part of the Paris Agreement.
  • Publishes the results of this analysis through an online tool.

The funds supporting the Transition Pathway Initiative have committed to use the results in a number of different ways, including informing their investment decision-making, engagement with companies, dialogues with fund managers and with policy makers.
