This Whitepaper presents a framework for identifying credible transitions aligned with the Paris Agreement
This paper has two purposes:
1. Define transition as a concept by presenting a starting point for the market to see a credible brown to green transition as ambitious, inclusive and aligned with the Paris Agreement (thereby avoiding greenwash).
2. Put forward a framework for use of the transition label in practice and propose clearly demarcated roles for both a green and a transition label.
