2°\; Investing Initiative and Beyond Ratings are delighted to invite you to:

Climate Too ls Workshop: Aligning Climate Targets\, Pledges and Actions of Financial I nstitutions and Corporations with the Paris Agreement \;

 \;

2°\; Investing Initiative will bring together asset owners\, asset managers and technical experts to discuss ways to fos ter interaction between investors and companies\, develop a more comprehen sive understanding of their needs for climate-related tools\, as well as s howcase and gather feedback on existing and emerging tools.

 \;

Since COP21\, climate alignment target-s etting by investors and banks has evolved into a popular concept accepted by mainstream financial institutions and governments.

 \;

However\, until now\, target-setting has mostl y been seen by large financial institutions as a way to measure changes in the climate assessment of their portfolio by improving the value of the u nderlying indicator to communicate on progress\, rather than one to drive impact in the real economy.

 \;

In order to drive actual impact but also to comply with marketing regula tions\, it is critical to establish market standards on:

•\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \ ; \; \; What is a relevant target from a technical perspect ive? (discussion on current target frameworks)

•\; \ ; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&nb sp\; How to evaluate investment and impact opportunities triggered by the Paris Agreement objectives?

•\; \; \;&nbs p\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; How to measure and report progress toward climate targets?

•\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;  \; \; \; How to implement a climate strategy and what exist ing tools can support investors’\; actions?

A number of our own ongoing initiatives ar e related to those issues\, notably the following:

< p class=MsoNormal>•\;& nbsp\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;  \; \; The creation of a comprehensive PACTA climate toolkit wit h new functionalities such as a target-setting simulator\, company reports consultation module\, stress testing excel tool

•\;&nbs p\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;& nbsp\; The development of a model to identify investment opportunit ies arising under a 2°\;C carbon budget in partnership with Beyond Rati ngs\, now part of the Information Services Division (ISD) of London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG).

 \;

Why attend?

•\; \; \; \; \;&nbs p\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; Learn from ind ustry experts on existing and emerging climate-related tools

•\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&nb sp\; \; \; Hear from investors and corporates on how these tools are shaping their actions

•\; \; \; \;  \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; Inf luence the development of emerging tools and methodologies for measuring t he impact of climate actions
