We're running out of time to reach net-zero emissions

* The chart above shows annual total Scope 1 emissions of MSCI ACWI IMI constituents (not index weighted) based on companies' reported emission data and MSCI estimates, up to 2020. Emissions for 2020 that companies haven't yet reported and 2021 figures are based solely on MSCI estimates, given a lag in company reporting. The remaining future emissions budget to achieve a 1.5°C and 2°C warming scenario are calculated based on bottom-up estimates (sum of remaining emissions budget of all MSCI ACWI IMI constituents) as of August 31, 2023.
