Using the best available publication that has been shared with you for an asset in a collection

This article describes how Pathzero Navigator enables the request for data from a portfolio company or asset to enable accurate calculation of financed emissions.

Accurate data is essential for the attrubition required when calculating financed emissions using the PCAF standard for data quality assessment in asset and portfolio management. Pathzero Navigator enables asset owners or managers to request the information required to calculate financed emissions securely using Pathzero Clarity.

When an asset or a portfolio company shares a publication within a given reporting period from Pathzero Clarity, Navigator will use the best available data that has been published for the given asset in a collection.  

What is the best available publication?  

The best available publication from the asset or portfolio company must fall within 12 months of the collection year-end for it to be used. 


Collection Name: Fund 1 

Reporting Year-End: 30 June 2022 

Contained Asset: Company 1 

A data publication request was made to Company 1, targeting Fund 1 and aligned with a reporting year-end of 30 June 2022. Company 1 approved the request and shared their data via the Pathzero Clarity app. However, the published data corresponds to the reporting year-end of 31 December 2021, as it is the nearest available reporting period. 

Pathzero Navigator will use Company 1's published data for the reporting year-end of 31 December 2021 within the Fund 1 collection, which is centered around a reporting year-end of 30 June 2022. This selection is valid since the 31 December 2021 data falls within the preceding 12 months of 30 June 2022, specifically spanning from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022. 


This currently published data will be considered the optimal available publication. It will be replaced if a closer match to the collection's reporting year-end emerges. For instance, if Company 1 provides a new publication for the reporting year-end of 30 June 2022, this updated data will supersede the previously shared data from 31 December 2021 in Fund 1.
