The Financial Implications of Climate Change: MSCI Global Low Carbon Indexes
Climate change presents one of the biggest economic and political challenges of the 21st century, and investors are exploring the potential impact of these changes on financial assets. Of particular interest may be the long-term portfolio implications of "carbon stranded assets" - assets that may lose economic value before the end of their expected life because of changes associated with the transition to a low carbon economy.
Watch the webinar recording to hear from MSCI ESG Research and MSCI Index experts on the potential impacts of climate change and how the MSCI Global Low Carbon Target Indexes, innovative new indexes designed to minimize carbon exposure, may support a low carbon investment strategy. The MSCI Global Low Carbon Indexes are the first ever benchmarks designed to address two dimensions of carbon exposure: carbon emissions and fossil fuel reserves.
