In the Paris climate agreement six years ago, countries around the world agreed to limit global warming to less than 2˚C. Since then, with the development of climate-related regulatory mechanisms, companies committed to reducing carbon emissions targets, and investors gradually moving away from coal-related investments, the global momentum in response to the climate crisis has continued to increase, but the aspect of climate disclosure remains There is a major gap.

How important is climate information disclosure for investors to assess a company’s carbon intensity and its impact on portfolio performance? As investors and policymakers seek greater carbon transparency, what are the key trends in climate change reporting?

In order to promote the sustainable development of the world, MSCI and CFA Association will jointly hold the ESG forum at the 3rd GCSF Global Business Sustainability Forum.
