MSCI makes public ESG metrics

MSCI has said it has made public its ESG Fund Ratings provided by MSCI ESG Research.

The ratings cover 36,000 multi-asset class mutual funds and ETFs, and ESG metrics for all of its indexes covered by the European Union Benchmark Regulation. The ESG ratings and metrics are available as part of two new search tools now available to anyone on the MSCI website.

The MSCI ESG Fund Ratings search tool provides the ESG Fund Rating of a mutual fund or ETF, its peer and global rank, the ESG Rating distribution of the fund’s holdings and other ESG metrics, including green vs brown revenue, board independence and diversity and social screens such as tobacco. The MSCI Index Profile search tool provides index level ESG metrics for all of its EU-regulated equity and blended indexes, and information on whether these indexes include ESG criteria.
