  • S&P Dow Jones Indices has launched the first carbon emitter scorecard amid rising interest in the ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) sector as investors look at how they can impact climate change. On its debut, the S&P Index Carbon Emitter Scorecard, which is based on the S&P Global 1200, found that only 15% of global emissions are directly produced by the world’s blue-chip organisations.
