Russell Green America Index Series

Our full Russell Green America Index Series features US companies from small to mega-cap who are engaged in the transition to a green economy.

The Russell Green America Index Series is a green thematic, alternatively-weighted US equity index family based on the Russell US Indexes. The indices are designed to feature US companies from small cap to mega-cap, who are engaged in the transition to a green economy, based on FTSE Russell’s Green Revenues data model, with no fossil fuel involvement and target carbon emissions reduction.

Index design allows for the following characteristics:

  • Selects US companies with any green revenues; targets a minimum 100% increase in exposure to companies with green revenues at index level

  • Excludes companies with specific fossil fuels involvement, as well as companies with UN Global Compact controversies and specific involvement in weapons and tobacco

  • Targets carbon emissions reduction by 50% vs. the benchmark and 7% year-on-year reduction

The indices are suitable to be used to gain green exposure in portfolios, as a basis for ETFs, structured products and other index-linked investment vehicles, or as a performance benchmark for climate thematic mandates.
