MSCI adds indexes for net zero transition

MSCI has announced the launch of the MSCI Climate Action Indexes that includes companies moving towards emission reduction targets.

The indexes consist of companies that are taking measurable steps to tackle their emissions using the 11 Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) sectors. They include the MSCI ACWI Climate Action Index, MSCI World Climate Action Index, MSCI Emerging Markets Climate Action Index, MSCI USA Climate Action Index and MSCI Europe Climate Action Index.

The indexes also aim to help investors who are seeking to follow the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) recommendations on addressing real-economy emissions reductions.
