MSCI Launches Climate Change Indexes for China Stocks – The New York Times

MSCI published two climate change indexes on Tuesday that allow investors in China stocks to lean toward companies with lower carbon emissions. The move represents MSCI’s efforts to promote environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards in China, where the government seeks a difficult balance between reducing pollution and sustaining growth in a coronavirus-hit economy. The newly created climate change indexes were based on the MSCI China Index and the MSCI China A Index. Compared with their parent indexes, the new indexes allocate more weighting to less polluting companies.
