About the Event:

As demands for climate disclosure and target-setting continue to intensify, companies need insights into the most important ESG and climate data to track progress and communicate to key stakeholders.

MSCI’s improved visualization and analysis solution on MSCI ONE – Corporate Sustainability Insights – gives you the option to track, measure and compare your ESG and climate metrics against peers while also identifying potential disclosure gaps through intuitive charts, graphs and maps.

In this webinar we will walk you through the tool and show you how to:

  • Deepen your understanding of your material ESG and Climate exposures
  • View your company’s MSCI Implied Temperature Rise and target scorecard
  • Provide feedback and enter new climate data for MSCI review
  • Explore any company’s MSCI ESG & Climate metrics

In addition, one of our Climate Research experts will walk through some of the key Climate metrics and insights that global institutional investors may be using to inform their capital allocation decisions.
