Hear from Fraser Pearce, the Trafford Centre’s independent board chair, about the board’s experience utilizing the Framework to help inform the company’s path to net zero.
Ashley Vogeli, Managing Director, Strategic Communications, recently sat down with Richard Manley, Head of Sustainable Investing, Global Leadership Team and Fraser Pearce, Independent Board Chair of the Trafford Centre to discuss the inspiration behind the Abatement Capacity Assessment Framework and the Trafford Centre’s experience utilizing the Framework to help inform the company’s path to net zero.
As Richard noted during the conversation, “the real opportunity here is to have a conversation about the optimal transition – that we remove the most greenhouse gases from the business that we could with the least capital outlay into the business”.
Fraser highlighted that the Framework “allows you to put that priority into a business plan, into a case, and then make sure that you’ve got the finance to do it. And, you give the investor in our case CPP Investments the confidence that it’s achievable because you’ve done the work”.
The interview provides a practical example of how the Abatement Capacity Framework can help investors assess and corporate boards and management develop transparent and credible plans to achieve net-zero goals and create long-term value.
