New publications are available at the Scout Report!

Learn More About Climate Change

The phrase “climate change” might be combative to some and confusing to others. The University of Colorado’s Office for University Outreach has worked with its scholars to create the Learn More About Climate (LMAC) site in order to translate climate change information into “resources and tools for teachers, policymakers, and citizens.” Here, visitors can make their way through eight different areas, including Topics, Lessons, Videos, and Initiatives. In the Lessons area, educators will find model lessons about climate change, such as “Mountain Pine Beetles,” “Evidence of Climate Change,” and “What Makes You Hot.” Additionally, the Videos section offers up some excellent short films on rising sea levels and species adaption as a result of climate change. Those interested in specific LMAC projects will enjoy the Initiatives section, as it offers up brief summaries of ongoing projects, complete with two great webinars on Climate Change Conversations.


Nature Soundmap

What does a humpback whale sound like? Or perhaps the White-cheeked Gibbon? The Nature Soundmap provides snippets of these sounds and much, much more. Visitors will find an interactive map of the world, complete with markers that allow audio wildlife travel from Central America to Central Asia a snap. Symphonies of animal noises can also be found here, as visitors can click on Greece to listen to “Summer Ambience” or France to find “Dawn in the Lezardrieux Forest.” Each marker includes information about the animal or setting profiled, along with a link to More Info for the generally curious.

Webinar: Investment Strategies for Reducing Fossil Fuel Exposure

In response to the 350.org call for divestment, investors globally are taking a closer look at the role of fossil fuels in their investment strategies. In the recent ESG issue brief, “Options for Reducing Fossil Fuel Exposure,” MSCI ESG Research explores four major strategies that range from fully excluding carbon reserve holders to adding positive exposure to clean technology.


Following this publication, MSCI ESG Research invites you to two webinars (North America and EMEA sessions) where industry experts will provide insight into the following three approaches to reducing fossil fuel exposure: fossil fuel free, low carbon, and thematic. 


EMEA Speakers:

  • James Leaton, Research Director, Carbon Tracker
  • Gunnela Hahn, Head of Responsible Investment, Church of Sweden
  • Frederic Samama, Deputy Global Head of Institutional Clients, Amundi
  • Hugo Rogers, Fund Manager, Global Emerging Markets Equities, F&C Investments
  • Linda-Eling Lee, Global Head of ESG Research, MSCI ESG Research


Discussion topics:

  • How much exposure does a portfolio have to potential ‘stranded assets’?
  • How do the various strategies, from divestment to low carbon to thematic, compare when it comes to carbon intensity and performance?
  • What strategies are leading investment managers employing today?

Session 2 (EMEA)
