FTSE ESG Indices

An overview of FTSE ESG Indices 

The FTSE ESG Index Series is designed to help investors align investment and ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) objectives into a broad benchmark, whilst maintaining industry neutrality.

Company weights within each index are ‘tilted’ using FTSE Russell’s ESG Ratings. Subsequently, industry neutral re-weighting is applied so that the industry weights in each index match the underlying index universe.

As a result, the FTSE ESG Indices have risk/return characteristics similar to the underlying universe with the added benefit of improved ESG metrics.

The FTSE ESG Index Series consists of following Index Segments:

FTSE Developed ESG Indices

FTSE Emerging ESG Indices

FTSE All-Share ESG Indices

Russell 1000 ESG Indices
