Developing Criteria to Align Investments with 2° Compatible Pathways

The German government, through the German Federal Environment Agency, commissioned a consortium consisting of NewClimate Institute, Germanwatch, and the 2° Investing Initiative to explore criteria to measure the alignment of investment and financing with the 2°C limit.

The project focuses in particular on development finance institutions. It serves as a starting point for a more longterm initiative to develop metrics and tools to inform on the alignment of investment and financing decisions with international climate policy objectives. It builds on and links to on-going related research activities and investor actions, which seek to understand climate performance and current and future climate risks.
