How regulation is pushing for science-based climate metrics
With an increasing amount of political and regulatory pressure for accurate climate-related disclosures, corporations and financial actors are likely to find themselves in a conundrum derived from effectively generating and disclosing required information. Disclosing risks, opportunities and specific contributions of climate change to an corporations and financial actors might prove challenging at the initial stages due to the level of complexity required to understand how climate will affect a corporation, assets and investments. right. based on science proposes disclosing climate-related information with the use of science-based climate metrics, specifically using the X-Degree Compatibility ("XDC") as the main source of information.

Introduction to the XDC, a science-based climate metric.
A company´s specific contribution to manmade climate change had not been quantified up to now. right. based on science has developed a science-based climate metric that quantifies this contribution in a precise manner: a company´s X-Degree Compatibility ("XDC") measures the temperature increase the world would face by 2050, should all companies be as emission intensive as the company at hand, given the same economic output. The XDC allows a company to:

"Climate-related legal risk management: The merits of science-based sustainability data"
Since climate change is affecting society at different levels, companies are starting to ask how to incorporate this reality into their performance. We explored the following points in order to determine an appropriate course of action towards considering and incorporating risks from a legal perspective:
