Franklin Templeton

Franklin Templeton Investment is using Carbon4 Finance data for their Green Bond assessment: “Our objective was to understand the real-life impact that the green bond or project has on climate change. This includes the impact of materials used, construction principles, sourcing of materials, grid factors, energy being displaced out of local system – all these variables can be radically different if the incorrect or generic assumptions are used.”
