Implied Temperature Rise by GICS® sector

Tracking climate progress by listed companies

Every sector has its sector-specific emissions budget and companies whose emissions trajectories align (or don’t) with it. By design, the use of a forward-looking climate impact metric such as MSCI’s Implied Temperature Rise captures the extent to which companies are projected to overshoot or undershoot their sector-specific budget for staying below a target temperature.
