MSCI ESG research focus on the energy sector: What can a short-term shock tell us about long-term resilience?
The Energy Sector has been hit particularly hard during the COVID-19 crisis, with lower demand for energy and limited storage capacity driving oil prices into negative territory in mid-April, following an earlier price cut due to Saudi and Russian oil price war in March. With rumblings of the COVID-19 crisis accelerating a low-carbon transition, which companies will survive the oil shock and position themselves for future growth?
In this webinar, MSCI ESG Research Lead Energy Analyst, Antonios Panagiotopoulos, will highlight which energy companies have already started to invest in low-carbon solutions and show strong promise of managing climate-related risks. MSCI’s Head of Applied Research, Jean-Maurice Ladure, will explain the recent outperformance observed in various ESG and Climate Indexes and how the energy sector is captured in different index methodologies.
