The SGX Group has inked an agreement with MSCI to license the MSCI Climate Action Indexes for listed future contracts.
Through the deal, the SGX Group will be able to develop a range of climate-related products including futures contracts to help investors reduce their portfolio carbon footprint.
The SGX Group said the MSCI Climate Action Indexes offer investors a “broader choice of solutions to help them meet their net-zero commitments and integrate climate considerations in global equity portfolios.”
“Given the growing influence of investors over companies, these indexes coupled with related products in the pipeline will facilitate climate engagement and accelerate the flow of funds to directly support companies in their transition efforts. We will continue to work with all our partners to identify and develop suitable climate-related solutions to meet investor needs,” Loh Boon Chye, Chief Executive Officer of SGX Group, said.
