The 2° Investing Initiative as part of the Sustainable Energy Investing Metrics Project launched an assessment framework to measure the 2°C alignment of listed equity portfolios at COP21 in Paris in 2015.

This report summarizes the feedback we have received on the assessment from investors, NGOs, policymakers, and experts as well as the next steps of the project. Since launching the assessment, 100 investors across 16 countries have committed to testing their listed equity portfolios, testing approximately $350 billion USD of equity, as well as 20 investment products. Following the first round of road-test, the 2° Investing Initiative has initiated feedback on the model, including investor interviews, third-party consultations, as well as a quantitative survey among the investors who have road-tested the model.

2DII today announced it is transferring stewardship of the Paris Agreement Capital Transition Assessment (PACTA) to RMI, formerly Rocky Mountain Institute. PACTA measures financial portfolios' alignment with various climate scenarios, including those consistent with the Paris Agreement. Under RMI’s stewardship, PACTA will remain a free, independent, open-source methodology and tool, and will continue to provide the financial and supervisory community with forward-looking, science-based scenario analysis to help users make climate-aligned financing decisions. RMI will invest in scaling up PACTA’s usability and applicability in day-to-day investment decisions as well as reporting requirements.
