Overview
The MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative aims to limit global warming emissions to protect the planet from the worst effects of human-induced climate change, and promote human prosperity and health around the world. One leverage point in reducing emissions is the re-allocation of capital. This work will provide information on financial institution carbon intensity that would be relevant to organizations in the United States; it will inform the following decisions: choice of investment targets for capital, choice of insurance companies for a range of business insurance services, choice of banks, and choice of investment options for employees in 401(k) retirement plans.
