MSCI Inc. Launches Innovative Family of Low Carbon Indexes

MSCI Inc. announced the launch of the MSCI Global Low Carbon Leaders Indexes, consisting of companies with significantly lower carbon exposure than the broad market. The indexes were developed at the request of and with critical insights from Fourth Swedish National Pension Fund AP4, Fonds de Réserve pour les Retraites (FRR) and Amundi, who were looking for representative benchmarks in the transition to a low carbon economy. MSCI then consulted on the proposed methodology with a variety of investors globally. The MSCI Global Low Carbon Leaders Indexes are based on the MSCI ACWI Index, the global policy benchmark covering developed and emerging markets, and utilize MSCI ESG CarbonMetrics data from MSCI ESG Research Inc. The MSCI Global Low Carbon Leaders Indexes address two dimensions of carbon exposure - carbon emissions and fossil fuel reserves, providing clients with an effective tool for limiting the exposure of their portfolios to carbon risk. While selecting companies with a lower carbon exposure, the indexes aim to maintain a wide and consistent market exposure by minimizing the tracking error compared to the performance of the parent standard indexes.
