Shining a light on climate leaders and laggards

Presented by

Meggin Thwing Eastman, Global ESG Editorial Director, MSCI | Guido Giese, Head ESG and Climate Solutions Research, MSCI

About this talk

The world’s publicly listed companies are running out of time to reach net-zero. Listed companies have less than six years to avoid breaching a key global-heating threshold unless they dramatically drive down emissions of carbon and other greenhouse gases, according to the latest Net-Zero Tracker, a quarterly report from MSCI. Companies must dramatically accelerate climate action to keep global warming this century to no more than 1.5°C, the limit scientists say the planet must achieve to avoid the worst impacts of a warming climate. Join thought leaders from MSCI ESG Research on October 26 for insights into the progress companies are making toward net-zero and information investors can draw on to inform decision-making. The session will address how investors are: • Assessing the progress of listed companies toward global climate goals • Measuring the temperature of investments • Spotting climate leaders and laggards in every industry • Putting portfolios on a net-zero pathway The session will also address the need for strong targets and timeframes to reach net-zero.
