Net Zero Transition Plans

Effective, credible transition plans are strategies for addressing transition risk and for getting to net-zero emissions. These would eventually drive provision of financial products and services. We study transition plans in the Net Zero Transition Plans project and focus on the provision of tools and data for assessing credibility of transition plans.

In the first phase of the project (2022-23), we focused on developing a deeper understanding of transition plans and finance across four emissions-intensive sectors: oil & gas, power generation, steel, and aviation. The research focused on Identifying key aspects, suggesting ideal solutions, providing a comparative analysis of existing solutions, and setting up future deep dives.

In the second phase of the project (2023-24), we are now focusing on some of deep dives identified in Phase 1, namely: the role of external dependencies in credible transition plans, using asset-level data to assess credibility of transition plans, investigating the impact of credible transition plans on the cost of capital, and designing sustainability-linked finance products using transition plans.

Beyond Phase 2 (2025+), we plan to continue engaging in specific questions of relevance to credible transition plans, established via continuous dialogues with our stakeholders, including policymakers, regulators, financial institutions, corporations, and non-profits.
