MSCI in practice: Net-Zero and Environmental Impact Investing Approaches
In an effort to shift to a less carbon intensive global economy, governments and society are increasingly demanding a target of net-zero emissions by 2050 and companies are announcing decarbonization or ‘Net-Zero’ commitments. But what exactly do we mean by ‘Net-Zero’ and what are the investment considerations for a net-zero journey?
Join this MSCI in practice session where we will help Wealth Managers, including Advisers and Investment Teams, investigate how climate investing differs from ESG investing, discuss the urgency around the journey to Net-Zero and explore the practical tools which can help you and your clients make better climate-informed investment decisions. Joined by experts in the wealth field across the US and Europe, we will define the variety of challenges facing the world’s leading financial institutions as they seek to tackle the issue of climate change and explore how you can begin to answer key questions and discuss investment considerations around climate and environmental impact with your clients.
