for MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative's climate change mitigation and sustainability work  
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.
