ESG and Climate Trends to Watch for 2023

Against a backdrop of a war in Europe, inflation, energy markets in turmoil, political uncertainty and an unending stream of climate-induced disasters, MSCI’s ESG and Climate Trends to Watch for 2023 takes a closer look at some of the major developments and how they might shape the investment environment and impact the challenges and opportunities for companies. 

The webinar will focus on 3 key themes of the report:

  • Energy turning points. The war in Ukraine has created both more demand for and more pressure on fossil fuels. Meanwhile, we see investment in renewables and chatter about the prospects for nuclear power.
  • Boards of the future. Investors and regulators continue to scrutinize companies’ responses to global challenges, such as climate change, new technologies or workforce relations during a cost-of-living crisis. How can companies build boards to help them stand up to that scrutiny?
  • Regulators to save the world. As time is running out for a 1.5°C pathway, regulators around the world turn their eye to the financial sector both to accelerate capital flows into greener activities and to better gauge risks to financial stability from climate change.  What is the room of maneuver for regulators in steering sustainable finance?
