MSCI永續發展中心成立 台裔李宜玲出任創始負責人

MSCI在13日宣布成立 MSCI 永續發展中心,以協助資本市場發揮作用,創造永續價值,並應對氣候變遷等全球挑戰。中心創始董事兼主管將由台裔美籍李宜玲(Linda-Eling Lee)出任,她曾入選美國金融界100位最具影響力的女性。

MSCI指出,MSCI永續發展中心將利用 MSCI 在投資行業累積的經驗和專業知識,推動金融業、學術界、政府、非政府組織、智庫及各行各業之間的合作,並助力縮小在制定戰略過程中所涉及的資料、分析、政策和行動之間的差距。 無論是推動業界再生能源經濟轉型,或是應對其他長期風險,都需要資本市場生態圈的通力合作。



MSCI 董事長兼執行長費南德斯(Henry Fernandez)表示,氣候變遷等全球挑戰,無法單靠政府、企業、非政府組織,或多邊組織等任何一方獨自解決。最有意義的解決方案均需要某種形式的跨界合作。MSCI永續發展中心將廣泛彙集具有互補優勢和專業知識的專家,並協助他們將資料分析所得到的構想,轉化為實際行動,發揮影響力。

MSCI 永續發展中心負責人李宜玲曾為 MSCI 全球 ESG 和氣候研究部主管,建立永續領域頂尖的研究團隊,對於永續價值和投資風險的長期驅動因素有深入的研究。在 ESG 和永續發展領域,她是備受肯定的領導人物與思惟領袖,曾入選美國金融界 100 位最具影響力的女性。

李宜玲表示:「我們非常高興能與投資者、學術界、政策制定者、非政府組織和各行各業攜手合作,通過運用 MSCI 在衡量財務和非財務價值方面的創新經驗,讓資本市場對於如何促進永續價值,有更深的認識。」
