Net-Zero Now a new documentary by MSCI about the need for bold action to build climate-aligned investment portfolios, premiered on Sept 20.
As flooding, fires, storms and drought hint at the disruption to come if the planet doesn’t bring emissions of greenhouse gases down to Net-Zero to reduce warming, it is becoming increasingly evident that investors will play a critical role in averting a climate disaster.
Net-Zero Now examines how investors can drive the transition to an economy that takes as much carbon out of the atmosphere as it puts in by using data, tools and the latest insights to navigate markets in which climate change presents a growing source of both risk and opportunity.
The documentary shows how investors are measuring the temperature of their investments, untangling corporate commitments to reach net-zero emissions and uncovering the potential for outperformance by businesses built for a Net-Zero world.
Always present: a sense of what’s at stake for the economy and society. “We’re talking about the equivalent of a full global industrial revolution” says Remy Briand, MSCI’s head of ESG and one of several researchers, academics and technologists who are interviewed for the film.
You’ll emerge from “Net-Zero Now” hard-pressed to disagree.
