These datasets support the implementation in R of the software PACTA (Paris Agreement Capital Transition Assessment), which is a free tool that calculates the alignment between financial assets and climate scenarios (https://2degrees-investing.org/). Financial institutions use PACTA to study how their capital allocation impacts the climate. Because both financial institutions and market data providers keep their data private, this package provides fake, public data to enable the development and use of PACTA in R.
