Financial Institutions Tool

Temperature Scoring and Portfolio Coverage Tool for Financial Institutions

As part of its framework for financial institutions , the SBTi has developed a data-agnostic Python library that is primarily for integration into commercial and homegrown decision support and portfolio management systems, but can also be run as a standalone solution. It is based on the temperature scoring method developed by CDP and WWF.

This tool helps financial institutions to assess the temperature alignment of current emission reduction targets, commitments, and investment and lending portfolios. This information can be used by financial institutions to develop GHG emission reduction targets for official validation by the SBTi, develop engagement strategies and help with strategic security selection and allocation decisions.
