Real Estate Climate Solutions intro

We know that real estate and property have a big impact on the climate. With the built environment contributing almost 40% of global carbon emissions* and physical risk impacting property values in certain markets, real estate investors have an increased imperative to take action. In response to the growing impacts of climate change, societal pressure and new regulations, investors are adopting new ways to measure and reduce their environmental impact.

We help investors take impactful action, make climate-informed investment decisions and build more sustainable portfolios. We are first in the industry to integrate performance and climate risk across real estate portfolio analysis, providing investors with a common language and speeding up climate integration across the investment process.

Accelerate Climate Integration

Accelerating climate integration and informed action

MSCI Real Estate offers a comprehensive suite of tools to help real estate investors measure and manage portfolio exposure to climate risk, and identify and set strategic goals – all on one platform. We can answer questions such as: How can climate metrics be used for pre-acquisition due diligence? How does my climate progress compare with my industry peers? How can I move from knowledge to action?

Helping investors align and comply

Sustainable Finance is likely to revolutionize markets in the coming years and regulation, including TCFD, will accelerate the need to consider climate and ESG factors. With our global expertise across real estate, climate and ESG we are your go-to partner to help support your reporting needs.

Our solutions support the implementation of a TCFD framework for climate disclosure and are continuing to expand this with the release of the real estate TCFD Metrics Report, which provides both forward- and backward- looking climate risk data in a TCFD-aligned format.

We’re also supporting our clients to comply with the ambitious EU Sustainable Finance package, which includes the new Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulations (SFDR). This requires certain financial market players serving EU investors to consider ESG risks and make ESG disclosures at the organization and financial product level. Our Principle Adverse Sustainability Impacts Solution provides a seamless process to take action to meet the EU regulatory requirement on sustainability risk disclosures using a scalable and robust reporting framework.
