There is no single approach to sustainability
Sustainable investment has transformed into a critical part of mainstream investment thinking. A view of sustainability within an investment strategy can be varied, as the objective can be different based on investors’ desired outcomes and convictions.
Selecting sustainable investment indices
Whatever your sustainability objectives, FTSE Russell offers a comprehensive range of environmental, social and governance (ESG) and climate indices.
We provide investors with a broad set of tools to measure and analyse global markets across asset classes, styles or strategies, which are designed to help investors integrate their sustainability view into their investment strategies.
These indices, covering thousands of companies and the main sovereign issuers globally, are designed to meet diverse investor objectives and themes, such as climate, ESG and sustainable factor overlays.
FTSE Russell provides both next-generation and long-serving sustainable investment indices, based on widely tracked FTSE Russell benchmarks, to help clients stay one step ahead.
With more than 20 years of experience in sustainability, we are your trusted provider to help you integrate sustainability into your investment strategy.
