Climate alignment of listed companies by region (MSCI Implied Temperature Rise in °C)

Tracking climate progress by listed companies

The carbon emissions of listed companies in every region make it likely that the world would exceed critical climate goals, based on our analysis of indexes comprising six developed and emerging-market regions. While every ton of carbon warms the planet to the same extent wherever it is produced, our methodology allocates a share of the global carbon budget to listed companies based in part on their sector and region.
