MSCI in practice: How to identify growing biodiversity risks in your portfolios
Biological diversity is rapidly declining — and becoming a material risk to investors. The landmark agreement reached at the United Nations biodiversity conference (COP15) has increased pressure on companies and investors to address nature loss. As a consequence, investor demand for advanced tools to measure impact and manage biodiversity risks is on the rise. With MSCI’s Biodiversity-Sensitive Areas and Deforestation Screening Metrics, investors can identify companies with operations in ecologically sensitive areas or with exposure to potential direct and indirect involvement in deforestation. These tools combine thousands of asset data points, overlayed with our proprietary location-specific biodiversity metrics to add greater clarity and focus for investors. Join us on April 20 to learn how investors could use the screening metrics to identify growing biodiversity risks in their portfolios.
