Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) report
SASB Standards guide the disclosure of industry-relevant sustainability information by companies to their investors. Our SASB report follows the organization’s guidance for the Professional and Commercial Services industry in which we operate. This report gathers information about MSCI’s policies on data security, workforce diversity and engagement and professional integrity, among other metrics. More information about the diversity of our global workforce can be found here.
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission report
MSCI’s Consolidated EEO-1 report is a snapshot in time of our U.S. workforce and is based on specific job categories prescribed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). We note, however, that MSCI is a U.S.-headquartered global company with a significant majority of its workforce based outside the U.S. Private-sector employers with 100 or more employees and some federal contractors are required to submit demographic workforce data to the EEOC, including by race/ethnicity, sex and job categories. While a single chart cannot capture the diversity of MSCI’s workforce, investors can explore this standardized report to learn about our U.S.-based employees. More information about the diversity of our global workforce can be found here.
CDP Climate Change Questionnaire
In 2023, MSCI responded to the CDP questionnaire for the fifth consecutive year and is awaiting its score. In 2022, MSCI received a score of A-. The score reflects MSCI’s leadership position on climate, including our best practices related to climate governance, business strategy, financial planning and carbon reduction initiatives. The questionnaire includes key climate-related metrics such as our energy usage and our Scope 1 and 2, as well as all relevant categories of our Scope 3, CO2e emissions.
Investors can explore how MSCI is integrating the latest climate-related risks and opportunities into our business strategy with our Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) report. The report provides our climate-related disclosures in four core business areas recommended by the TCFD: Governance, Strategy, Risk Management and Metrics and Targets.
How MSCI climate tools can help drive corporate sustainability goals (Case Study)
As a firm, we continually seek ways to maximize progress toward our sustainability goals. We relied on our climate data and forward-looking tools like Climate VaR and ITR to set a baseline and chart the steps to achieve our goals.
Climate Transition Plan
MSCI’s Climate Transition Plan provides visibility into how we are working to reduce our own carbon footprint. We believe we can accelerate progress toward a more sustainable planet through our ESG and climate solutions and our actions as a firm.
Corporate Responsibility Presentation
MSCI’s Corporate Responsibility Presentation is used during annual engagement meetings with our shareholders. We use these meetings as an opportunity to review and receive feedback on MSCI’s governance practices, our corporate responsibility efforts, human capital management strategies and the design of our executive compensation program.
MSCl's Notice of Annual Meeting and Proxy Statement discusses our governance and executive compensation practices, which are designed to support sustained value creation for our shareholders. The Proxy Statement also provides key details on the make-up of our Board of Directors and the oversight of key efforts and risks by MSCl's Board and management, including those related to corporate responsibility.

MSCI's SFDR report provides metrics and data on ESG risks and disclosures for the European Union using SFDR mapping developed by MSCI ESG Research. We are voluntarily disclosing these metrics to promote transparency and support data collection of EU financial market participants.
U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) report
