When charting new territory and preparing decision-critical data, methodological rigor is essential to success.
CPI leverages a decade of methodology development expertise to ensure consistency and comparability in our data, especially important to shed light on complicated topics that cross industries, geographies, and the private and public sectors.
And like CPI’s overall approach, our methodologies are not developed in silos. We keep the broader context in mind. Definitions, principles, accounting scope, assumptions, and data coverage are assessed in careful detail, validated through extensive consultation with industry leaders and climate finance practitioners, and shared transparently.
Through precision, impartiality, and cooperation, we not only ensure that each project is defensible under tough scrutiny, but also build trust and consensus that can foster further comparability and broader adoption.
