MSCI has launched Corporate Sustainability Insights, a tool designed to increase corporate executives’ understanding of the ESG and climate challenges facing their companies.
MSCI Corporate Sustainability Insights gives executives at companies tracked by MSCI ESG Research the ability to measure and compare their ESG and climate data versus peers, while also identifying potential disclosure gaps through intuitive charts, graphs, and maps.
Features of MSCI Corporate Sustainability Insights are designed to give companies:
• Streamlined insights to support strategic planning and drive investor engagement through new visualizations of MSCI ESG Research risk and performance data, including a company’s ESG Ratings, ESG Controversies, and Sustainable Development Goals Net Alignment profiles;
• Views into their risk exposure and alignment with global temperature goals through MSCI ESG Research’s Climate Value-at-Risk and Implied Temperature Rise solutions;
• Help in identifying their potential disclosure gaps in carbon-related commitments through the MSCI Target Explorer tool; and
• Views into climate-related risks and opportunities compared with industry peers, based on the recommendations from the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
Beth Byington, Global Head of Corporate ESG and Climate Solutions at MSCI, says, “The ESG and climate needs of companies have evolved dramatically as new reporting requirements from regulators and institutional investors have emerged in recent years. It is now more important than ever for listed companies to speak a common language with these audiences about financial opportunities and risks associated with subjects like climate change. MSCI Corporate Sustainability Insights was created to help corporate leaders, such as chief sustainability officers, gain further transparency into their ESG and climate profile. We hope these deeper insights will allow them to take quick, decisive action to meet their unique sustainability goals.”
