AP2

Trucost analyzed the carbon emissions of all companies in AP2’s portfolio.

Trucost supported AP2 in launching a project to measure the carbon footprint of all the companies in its portfolio.

The analysis found companies in the power generation and energy sectors, as well as those in the commodities and general industry sectors were responsible for the highest carbon emissions. AP2 the used this analysis to estimate the scale of costs these companies could incur along with the increasing cost of CO2 – as well as to determine how well each company was prepared to meet this challenge.
