MSCI Goes Deep on Carbon Budget Analysis
December 19, 2021 | EP. 136 | Carbon Budget, Climate Risk, Climate Search and ESG Rating Tool, TCDFBruce Kahn, Executive Director and Climate Solutions Specialist at MSCI
MSCI has just come out with its new Climate Search and ESG Rating Tool that gives investors and advisors access to data on two of the most important climate issues: temperature rise and decarbonization targets. Bruce Kahn is Executive Director and Climate Solutions Specialist at MSCI and teaches Sustainable Finance at Columbia University. Kahn joins us today to explain how this new tool will measure whether a company will stay within its portion of the shared carbon budget, which has been established by the Paris Agreement and modeled by TCFD. The Climate Search and ESG Rating Tool is doing this for over 2,900 companies, giving investors a much more nuanced look at climate risk within their portfolios.
