Welcome to the 2°C Scenario Analysis homepage of the 2° Investing Initiative, supported by the UN Principles for Responsible Investment.
This website hosts the research of 2° Investing Initiative and its partners, designed to help financial institutions integrate climate objectives and long-term climate-related risks into their portfolio management. You can find a number of different tools and analysis on this website, all open-source and IP-rights free:

- Methodology documentation and source code for the PACTA methodology for corporate lending, which allows banks to replicate the PACTA climate scenario model. Contact us to find out more about PACTA;
- The Bank of England 2019 climate stress-test for insurance companies (online from mid-July 2019);
- A dynamic stress-testing module allowing investors to develop their own stress-testing frameworks and apply them on their portfolio (online from Q3 2019);

- Company reports for engagement, developed in collaboration with key NGOs and data providers, and informing the CA100+ engagement initiative (online from Q4 2019);
The website also hosts a library of 2° Investing Initiative research reports, set to be expanded to host reports from partner organizations over the next year. It will also be home to future industry association climate pilot applications and the 2020 PACTA country pilot involving a UN-coordinated Paris Agreement assessment on progress relative to Art. 2.1c.
