The MSCI Sustainability Institute at COP28
COP28 produced the first global climate agreement that calls specifically for transitioning away from fossil fuels in energy systems in line with global climate goals. Nearly 200 countries agreed to align their national climate plans with the aim of limiting warming to 1.5°C above preindustrial times and reaching net-zero emissions by midcentury.
The Institute was on the ground at COP28, providing research-based insights and advancing discussion around the need for new forms of collaboration to translate global climate goals into action. Below are highlights from conversations that we convened together with insights from the Institute that informed the dialogue.
