Bain + Persefoni

Bain + Persefoni

A unique partnership that combines breakthrough carbon footprint analytics with decarbonization strategy  

Bain + Persefoni

The push to net-zero demands a paradigm shift. Companies that have felt constrained by a focus on compliance rather than value, approximations rather than auditable numbers, and annual assessments rather than real-time monitoring now have a powerful new option. Our partnership with Persefoni, the leading climate management and accounting platform, addresses those and many other limitations, enabling you to accelerate your carbon transitions, guided by a detailed analysis of your emissions footprint.

For more than a decade we have helped companies address a wide range of sustainability topics, from climate change and waste reduction to sustainable food systems and ESG investing. Our partnership with Persefoni now adds a critical component to our solution: a best-in-class carbon accounting platform that turns financial, operational and supply chain data into auditable—and actionable—results. 

Our expertise in carbon transitions and corporate strategy, and our deep understanding of the factors that determine investors’ priorities, combined with Persefoni’s powerful carbon accounting platform will enable you to pursue your net-zero strategy guided by detailed, trackable data, ensuring that your actions produce real impact and unlock value.

This partnership will enable all of our clients, from investors to financial institutions to corporates, to manage their carbon inventory with the same rigor and transparency they expect from their financial metrics.

Could the SEC’s New Climate Disclosure Rules Help Sharpen Climate Strategy?

CFOs should view the new rules as an opportunity to accelerate decarbonization.

What Can This Partnership Do For You?

What Can This Partnership Do For You?

The Partnership in Action

  • Portfolio Decarbonization Roadmap

    Portfolio Decarbonization Roadmap

    Carbon emissions within portfolios are increasingly subject to regulations and investor scrutiny, but to successfully reduce or improve your carbon footprint you need an accurate, actionable assessment of your point of departure. We can help you:

    • Determine the overall portfolio carbon footprint and intensity
    • Conduct a carbon process maturity assessment and track progress against an updateable baseline
    • Prioritize portfolio companies for decarbonization and create a mobilization plan

    For example, we determined the footprint and intensity for 30+ portfolio companies of a fund, prioritized three that accounted for the lion’s share of emissions, and developed a high-level plan for these companies that included key strategic & operational decarbonization actions.

  • Carbon Diligence

    Carbon Diligence

    Understanding the target’s carbon footprint, the ability to achieve decarbonization targets, or the exposure to carbon-related trends is becoming increasingly vital to formatting the deal thesis for many investors. We can help you:

    • Determine the highest emitting activities across the target’s business and value-chain
    • Benchmark the decarbonization performance and ambitions of peers
    • Determine the industry risks & opportunities (customer trends, regulations, new technologies, and more)
    • Identify priority decarbonization actions and estimate the resulting value creation potential

    For example, we assessed the carbon footprint of a dairy company, benchmarked the performance of its peers, and identified priority decarbonization steps that have the potential to result in a greater than 30% emissions reduction over the next 10 years, while boosting EBITDA.

  • Carbon Value Creation Plan

    Carbon Value Creation Plan

    Alongside creating positive environmental and societal outcomes, decarbonization can create economic value for investors; when done right it can lower costs, improve revenue and multiples, and facilitate better management of capital. We can help you:

    • Determine an updateable baseline and achieve full transparency on your carbon footprint
    • Create a detailed roadmap for decarbonization, including priority actions and estimated value unlock
    • Identify the enablers that will help you put your plan into action

    For example, we determined an updateable emissions baseline for a manufacturing company, prioritized its key decarbonization actions, aligned on a decarbonization ambition, and created a detailed plan with quick win-wins and steps to achieve long-term goals.
