The Dow Jones Sustainability Index family tracks the stock performance of the world's leading companies in terms of economic, environmental and social criteria.
The S&P ESG Sovereign Bond Index family offers investors exposure to the same sovereign bonds as standard cap-weighted sovereign bond indices but tilts the country weights towards more sustainable countries, based on RobecoSAM’s Country Sustainability Ranking.
The S&P ESG Factor Weighted index family offers investors exposure to the same companies as the underlying benchmark index family, but weights the components according to their ESG profile instead of using free-float market-cap weights. The ESG scores used in the weighting scheme are based on RobecoSAM’s Smart ESG methodology. It is the first global index family to use ESG as a performance factor for smart beta indices.
The family offers investors similar risk/return characteristics as standard global equity benchmarks, yet with a significantly higher exposure to sustainability leaders.
The family tracks the performance of companies in the S&P Global 1200 Index and its regional subsets that do not own fossil fuel reserves, while overweighting and underweighting companies based on their levels of carbon emissions.
