COP27, Companies and Investors

COP27 highlighted the need for greater protagonism of corporate climate pledges and initiatives to encourage public and private investment in developing countries. Here's another great article from MSCI, the same organization that published the "MSCI Net-Zero Tracker" in early November , including an analysis of the risk of forest wildfires worldwide.

Among some topics analyzed in more detail in the article are:

  • Businesses and financial institutions must back up their climate commitments with actions and investments. And “prevent dishonest climate accounting”.

  • The Net-Zero Data Public Utility (NZDPU), a central repository for climate transition data, is expected to be operational in the second half of 2023

  • Carbon markets and various initiatives: the US Energy Transition Accelerator, Global Carbon Trust standardised contracts for carbon credits, the African Carbon Markets Initiative, blue carbon projects and credits, credits for carbon captured by oceanic and coastal ecosystems

  • International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) developing a climate disclosure standard and partnership framework designed to support climate investment capability in developing and emerging economies

  • Blended finance for the climate transition in less developed economies

By the way, the advances of COP27 mean that the financial system also needs to prepare itself to support the transition to a low-carbon economy, estimating that trillions of dollars will be needed annually in investments in clean energy.
