MSCI Launches Implied Temperature Rise to Help Investors Align their Portfolios with Global Climate Goals

09/14/2021 | 07:23am EDT

MSCI has announced the launch of its Implied Temperature Rise solution, equipping investors globally with data to map how companies in their investment portfolios are aligning with global temperature targets. The innovative climate solution is launching ahead of COP26 in November. The Temperature Rise solution comes at a critical time to add clarity and transparency to opaque climate commitments. The solution assesses how strong these commitments are using a simplified and powerful metric: companies’ alignment to global temperature targets. Used alongside the company’s Target Scorecard, a framework to assess companies’ decarbonization and net-zero climate targets, this comprehensive series of analytical tools aims to help investors strengthen their engagement on climate risk and navigate the transition to a net-zero world. To enable investors to analyze the pace at which the companies they invest in are transitioning their businesses to meet their climate goals, the solution captures crucial benchmarks such as the 2°C target, referring to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) goal, or the 1.5°C limit, popularized through the Paris Agreement. The company’s Temperature Rise solution converts the current and projected greenhouse gas emissions, taking into consideration emissions reduction targets, of each company to an estimated rise in global temperature. Projections are calculated by comparing those projected emissions with the global carbon budget that remains if the planet is to keep temperature rise this century below 2°C, a benchmark also linked to the company’s quarterly Net-Zero Tracker. The Temperature Rise solution has been modelled to meet the design recommendations set out by the TCFD Portfolio Alignment Team for all segments of the financial sector to measure and disclose temperature alignment of portfolios as well as target-setting frameworks.
