Introducing the Lux Carbon Canvas: A Framework for Companies Looking to Prepare for the Energy Transition

April 23, 2018 | State of the Market Report

Carbon pricing schemes remain fragmented in terms of type, geography, and price, making it nearly impossible to make direct comparisons across the globe. Thus, there is a need for a methodology to determine the threshold at which a carbon price has an impact on financial performance and to understand the strategies companies can take to mitigate risk and evolve. In this report, we present the Lux Carbon Canvas: a framework for evaluating companies’ levels of resilience to a future global carbon price. The Carbon Canvas is a starting point for companies looking to develop a roadmap for becoming a sustainable business.
