S&P Dow Jones Indices Launches Global ESG Index Series

S&P Dow Jones Indices (S&P DJI), the world’s leading index provider has released the latest addition to its global Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) index family. This new set of indices provides performance profiles in line with several headline indices including the S&P Global 1200, Europe 350, S&P/ASX 200 and S&P Japan 500. The new indices also include ESG versions of S&P DJI’s well-known country and regional large and midcap benchmarks covering the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Africa and Asia-Pacific. These global ESG indices use enhanced ESG Scores and granular data that underpin the methodology for company inclusions and exclusions. The new indices follow the debut of the S&P 500® ESG Index that was released last month. These global ESG indices follow eligibility criteria based on companies’ ESG Scores, business activities and the UN Global Compact (UNGC). The indices exclude companies that produce tobacco, have tobacco sales and tobacco-related products and services greater than 10 percent of their revenues, and companies involved in controversial weapons either directly or via an ownership stake of 25 percent or more of another company involved in these weapons. A total of 22 regional and country ESG indices are part of this global launch.
