The core impact metric that we track and report on for every investment is greenhouse gas emissions abated, and most specifically CO₂ emissions abated. LRNE works with each portfolio company to develop a comprehensive framework for measuring averted CO₂ equivalent and uses this data to report both annual and cumulative carbon abatement.
In addition to monitoring and measuring emissions-related impact, we also track and report on other critical impact metrics such as board and employee diversity and inclusion, and job creation at our investments. LRNE is dedicated to partnering with each investment to help expand the positive societal impact of the company.
Each investment is also mapped against the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, not only at the high-level goal, but including individual SDG targets and indicators.
