What is IGECC?

The Energy Management and Climate Change Index (IGECC, for its words in Spanish) evaluates the performance of subnational governments in terms of energy management and combating climate change. It becomes a consultation tool for decision-makers, allowing them to analyze the situation of each entity studied and make improvements.

The evaluation carried out by the IGECC is the result of research and analysis of public data, organized under a methodology that allows for comparability and reliability of the information. Furthermore, this methodology was carefully designed to be aligned with important international initiatives that seek to combat climate change, reduce climate-related financial risks, and encourage the adoption of renewable energies.

The Energy Management and Climate Change Index (IGECC) has the objective of promoting and encouraging public management to carry out actions focused on promoting energy management and mitigating climate change through the analysis of information based on a methodology aligned to important international initiatives, such as: the Recommendations of the working group on climate-related financial statements (TCFD), the goals of the Paris Agreement, the Intended and Determined Contributions at the National Level (INDC), and the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (UN). Supporting subnational governments, businessmen, investors, academics and other interest groups in the collection and analysis of strategic information for decision making in the management of opportunities for adaptation to the effects of climate change and the mitigation of risks associated with climate change.

Mission

To be a multi-stakeholder online management platform serves as a reference point for energy and climate change management information, including activities, statistics, data, specific analytical tools, and knowledge products developed in response to the growing demand for information from stakeholders.

Vision

To support subnational governments in managing energy information to facilitate climate decision-making and adapt to the effects of climate change. In addition to performing diagnostics and foresight, integrating energy and climate data into public policies.

The IGECC allows sub-national governments to understand their score, know potential areas of opportunity that require attention to achieve higher score levels, and eventually move towards sustainable development. Additionally, it allows different stakeholders to understand energy and environmental management through comparative illustrations.

Methodology

The IGECC provides tools for integrating energy and environmental issues to help mitigate climate-related risks and enhance long-term value creation in analyzed subnational governments. In addition, integrating IGECC into investment decision-making will help identify opportunities or risks that cannot be captured by conventional financial analysis. The study entities for the IGECC 2020 were five States: Aguascalientes, Guanajuato, Jalisco, Queretaro and San Luis Potosí. As well as, 16 Municipalities: Aguascalientes Celaya, Guadalajara, Guanajuato, Irapuato, Leon, Puerto Vallarta, Salamanca, San Juan del Rio, San Luis Potosi, San Pedro Tlaquepaque, Santiago de Queretaro, Soledad de Graciano Sanchez, Tlajomulco de Zuniga, Tonala and Zapopan.

  • Alignment to international standards.
  • Data comparability. 
  • Data reliability.
  • Timely data. 
  • Balance of information. 
  • Transparency.

Regional study of energy management and climate change

The regional study of the subnational entities analyzed is not a component of the IGECC calculation; it only represents a regional level analysis of energy management and climate change, based on the answers that State and Municipal governments responded anonymously, confidentially, and voluntarily provided to a questionnaire composed of 40 questions aligned to important international initiatives, such as The Recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC), the objectives of the Paris Agreement, and the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (UN). The questionnaire was answered by State and Municipal public officials managing the ten IGECC thematic axes.
