Real Estate Climate Solutions intro

In response to the increasing impacts of climate change, societal pressure and new regulations, investors and institutions are adopting new ways to measure, manage and reduce their environmental impact.

With the built environment contributing almost 40% of global carbon emissions* and physical risk increasingly impacting property values in certain markets, real estate investors arguably have an increased imperative to reduce risk and significant greener opportunities to unlock.

MSCI are proud to be the 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

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 help answer questions such as how can climate metrics be used for pre-acquisition due diligence? And how does my climate progress compare with my industry peers?

Helping Clients to Align and Comply

Sustainable Finance is likely to revolutionize markets in the coming years and with our global expertise across real estate, ESG and climate we’re determined to be 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 focusing on how to support clients to comply to the ambitious EU Sustainable Finance package which includes the new Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulations (SFDR), that requires certain financial market players serving EU investors to consider ESG risks and make ESG disclosures at the organization and financial product level. The Principle Adverse Sustainability Impacts Solution provides a seamless process to help meet the EU regulatory requirement on sustainability risk disclosures using a scalable and robust reporting framework.
