ESG statement

Institutional investors worldwide rely on MSCI’s ecosystem of support for ESG investing to integrate environmental, social and governance considerations throughout their investment processes.1

From the reality of a changing climate to calls for a greener, more sustainable society, investors increasingly understand how ESG considerations can influence long-term risks and opportunities in financial markets. MSCI believes that ESG and climate factors will significantly impact the pricing of financial assets and lead to a large-scale reallocation of capital over the next decades.2

Research, ratings, indexes, models, and portfolio analytics from MSCI empower institutional owners and managers of assets in their drive to incorporate ESG into their investment strategies, embed such considerations throughout the portfolio management process, and factor ESG ratings into their fundamental company analysis.

MSCI promotes transparency across the investment value chain by making publicly available our ESG ratings of the most commonly owned companies as well as our methodologies for determining company ratings and constructing ESG indexes.
