Breaking Down Corporate Net-Zero Climate Targets

Presented by

About this talk

An increasing number of companies are announcing decarbonization or ‘net-zero’ commitments with approximately 35% of MSCI ACWI Index constituents having set some type of target as of January 2021. But how realistic are these targets? MSCI’s latest analysis reveals targets that appear to be similar in their headline can turn out to be quite different underneath the hood. This disparity may make it difficult to assess the potential impact targets could have, if achieved, on the environment or on companies’ climate risk profiles. Join MSCI and IPE as we explore some of the common decarbonization approaches and provide a framework for investors to compare companies’ climate commitments and assess where some of the strengths and weaknesses of a target may lie.
