MSCI & PRI New York Climate Week
Financed Emissions: Leading the Transition to a Low-Carbon Economy
Greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) associated with lending, underwriting and investment activities are more than 700 times higher on average than a financial institution’s direct emissions. Financial institutions are increasingly asked to be transparent about these financed emissions, in addition to their own generated GHG emissions.
How are investors tackling key challenges in implementing climate commitments and reducing the carbon emissions of their portfolio companies?
Join MSCI, the U.N. Principles for Responsible Investment and practitioners from across the investment industry to take a progress check and examine some of the practical questions that investors are confronting as they put net-zero into practice.
Topics to be explored include the real-world impact of climate-aligned investment strategies, the role of benchmarks in facilitating the flow of capital for the low-carbon transition, and the financing of sustainably produced energy and climate-change adaptation, as well as how the comprehensive U.S. climate law could turbocharge sustainable investment.
The in-person breakfast will take place during Climate Week NYC, which will bring together policymakers, business leaders and stakeholders from across society in conjunction with the opening of the 77th session of the U.N. General Assembly in New York.
