Climate commitments have innate risks due to the uncertainties associated with the credibility and durability of those commitments. National commitments need to be backed up with policy and legislative action to ensure they are credible. Equally, the breadth and depth of domestic political support determines the durability of those commitments in light of economic and political shocks which could weaken support in the future.
The trajectory of the policy environment is uncertain, creating a risk to investors, as policy commitments suffer from a lack of:
Credibility: A measure of policy maturity. How developed is domestic decarbonisation policy in relation to Net Zero? Are rhetorical commitments backed up with substantial policy?
Durability: A measure of the depth and breadth of political support. How vulnerable is the energy transition to political and economic shocks?
India’s energy transition remains nascent, with lower levels of policy maturity. Competing domestic priorities has frustrated major progress, with emissions expected to increase rapidly over the next decades.
Baringa’s Credibility & Durability assessments evaluate national commitments in light of these risks and uncertainties to highlight the relative confidence intervals surrounding national transition pathways; seeking to answer the question, are we on the right course?
