Bloomberg MSCI Fixed Income Paris-Aligned Indexes: New Climate Benchmarks for Net-Zero Strategies

The urgency of preventing the worst extremes of a changing climate is spurring investors, companies, financial intermediaries, and policymakers across the world to sharpen their focus on efforts to drive down greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero. 

Investors are monitoring whether companies have credible plans to reduce their emissions and tracking the alignment of portfolios with the Paris Agreement, which aims to limit global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius (2°C), preferably no more than 1.5°C, to prevent the worst extremes of a warming world.

Bloomberg and MSCI have collaborated to offer joint Climate Benchmarks, including a suite of Bloomberg MSCI Paris Aligned Fixed Income Climate Indexes. These indexes are designed to meet and exceed the minimum standards of the EU Paris-Aligned Benchmark (PAB) label. They combine Bloomberg’s extensive global fixed income index family with MSCI’s ESG and carbon emissions data to monitor corporate issuers of benchmark securities.

We invite you to join us for a 45-minute webinar where we will address current market developments, our indexes, and compelling case studies. We look forward to your questions and an exciting dialogue with you.
