Six asks of data vendors: Improving net zero data provision
This is a guide for investors engaging with private data vendors, to help increase the overall quality and usability of net zero data used in alignment assessments and target setting.
IIGCC members have developed six core asks to help data vendors understand investors’ needs. We also provide a set of disclosure templates in Annex 1 that investors can use with data providers to streamline information required to evaluate data products offered by vendors.
The six expectations are:
- Multidimensional data
- Data granularity
- Converging methodologies
- Data quality and regular updates
- increase coverage
- Robust monitoring frameworks
These expectations are not presented in order of importance and should be seen as a package. They are designed to complement the Net Zero Data Catalogue, which reviewed net zero alignment data offered by 16 leading private data vendors.
