Could boosting energy productivity improve your investment performance?

As part of the ‘Energy Productivity Index for Companies’ project, ClimateWorks Australia developed an index analysing the energy productivity of 70 global listed industrial companies across six sectors – airlines, automobiles, chemicals, construction, paper and steel. The resulting Guide for Investors found that improving energy productivity can deliver significant benefits to companies and their value as investments.

Though comprehensive, the Guide could not analyse every publicly listed company in sectors included. So ClimateWorks developed the Methodology Factsheet, outlining the steps investors can take to perform their own high level assessment of a portfolio company’s energy productivity performance
and energy efficiency ambition.
