⁺Emissions data is calculated using the methodology outlined by the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF). This methodology applies an attribution factor to the total emissions of each equity investment in the firm. The attribution factor is the outstanding amount of listed equities plus debt divided by the enterprise value, including cash. The total emissions produced by the company (using Refinitiv data) are then adjusted by this attribution factor for each company and summed for all the firm’s investments. The full PCAF methodology can be reviewed at https://carbonaccountingfinancials.com/ [carbonaccountingfinancials.com]. Weighted average emissions is calculated for the data reported as the sum of total financed emissions divided by $m of revenue multiplied by the weight for each company in the portfolio or respective reference index.
