2 Degrees - Paris Agreement Capital Transition Assessment (PACTA) tool
- Environmental data
- Alignment of equity, bond, or lending portfolios with various climate scenarios
What data do you provide?
PACTA is a free, first-of-its kind software that analyzes the alignment of equity, bond, or lending portfolios with various climate scenarios.
Building off a vast climate-related financial database, the tool produces a customized, confidential output report that enables users to study the alignment of their portfolios with climate benchmarks, as well as provide a comparison with their peers. The tool also features a stress-testing module that can be used by supervisors and their regulated entities.
PACTA helps investors implement the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), as well as comply with related regulations (Article 173 of France’s Law on Energy Transition for Green Growth, upcoming EU disclosure requirements, and more).
Where and how do you source your data?
The PACTA tool is open source and can be run with any data set structured as per PACTA’s specifications. The version provided online by the 2° Investing Initiative uses Asset Resolution’s asset-level data tied to financial instruments, scenario data from the International Energy Agency, and public information collected by the 2° Investing Initiative.
