The Paris Agreement Capital Transition Assessment is a free, open-source tool that allows investors to assess the alignment of portfolios with the Paris Agreement goals and understand if they are cumulating or reducing their exposure to transition risk. The tool uses physical asset-level data on revealed investment and production plans of companies, to capture changes in a portfolio’s technology and fuel mix over the next five years. It then compares the future plans with the International Energy Agency’s 2°C scenario which provides an assessment of the portfolio's (mis) alignment with this scenario.
