On this page, we provide detailed methodology for each of the 18 indicators that comprise the scoring system for CPI’s upcoming release of its revised Net Zero Finance Tracker.

NZFT Methodology

The NZFT Methodology document outlines the methodological foundations of the NZFT platform. This is the result of CPI’s assessment of what Paris alignment and net zero represent, reviewed and refined in light of what currently available data reveal in terms of trends and progress. This living methodology will be continuously updated and improved upon – in consultation with data providers and end users of the dashboard – as new data become available, and as Paris alignment and Net Zero frameworks evolve over time.
