MSCI & PRI New York Climate Week Seminar: Transparency and a common language in the net-zero revolution
We invite you to join MSCI, the Principles for Responsible Investment and the UN High Level Climate Champions team on September 22 for our New York Climate Week seminar, “Transparency and a common language in the net-zero revolution,” where we will examine the information that investors need to scale investment in sustainability for a net-zero economy.
Together with practitioners and policymakers, we’ll discuss the challenge of aligning portfolios with global temperature goals and delve into data that can support the channeling of capital at the speed that driving greenhouse gas emissions down to net-zero by midcentury will demand.

Panel Discussion: The Road to Net-Zero
By now it is clear that the road to net-zero will not be easy – not for the world and not for investors. To avoid breaching a 1.5°C threshold, every listed company would, on average, need to reduce its carbon intensity by 10% each year until 2050. Yet fewer than one in four companies have managed to reduce their emissions by quite this much.
