Countries are assessed across the ASCOR framework’s three pillars and thirteen topic areas.
Country emission trends are assessed in several ways to account for a variety of factors and uncertainties.
The TPI Centre in partnership with a group of asset owners, asset managers and investor networks (see the ASCOR Partners listed here
), developed an investor-led framework of indicators to assess how countries are managing the low-carbon transition and the impacts of climate change. In February 2023, the TPI Centre published an ASCOR Consultation Report
to gather feedback from a broad range of stakeholders on an initial framework. A new version of the framework and an associated assessment methodology was published in the ASCOR methodology note
in November 2023.
