MSCI — Implied Temperature Rise

Overview

Key to understanding the Implied Temperature Rise is the concept of a carbon budget: how much the world can emit and, by extension, how much a company can emit (across Scopes 1, 2 and 3) and remain within the limitations required to meet a 2°C warming scenario by 2100. Then we calculate companies’ projected emissions out over the next five decades based on their emissions track record, stated reduction targets, and other data. A company whose projected emissions are below budget can be said to “undershoot” while those whose projected emissions exceed the budget “overshoot”. The Implied Temperature Rise estimates the global implied temperature rise (in the year 2100 or later) if the whole economy had the same carbon budget over-/undershoot level as the company (or portfolio) in question.
