The CDP-WWF temperature rating methodology is an open-source methodology which translates targets into an intuitive metric. It consists of three steps- a target protocol that converts emission targets to temperatures; a company protocol that aggregates the targets into an overall score; and a portfolio protocol that weights the scores across an investment portfolio.
