Please Mr. Postman: 10 Messages on Portfolio Alignment & Implied Temperature Rise

This report outlines key recommendations from 2° Investing Initiative on portfolio alignment and Implied Temperature Rise (ITR) methodologies.

It builds on 8+ years’ experience in designing portfolio alignment concepts and methodologies for financial portfolios as part of our PACTA research stream and testing these approaches with over 1,000 financial institutions around the world.

The report is designed to support the TCFD Portfolio Alignment Team and the broader regulatory community in moving towards harmonization of portfolio alignment and implied temperature rise methodologies. It summarizes 2DII’s input to the TCFD consultation on measuring portfolio alignment, as well as our broader considerations on how we can move towards harmonization and standardization.
