  • The index tracks the performance of a selection of the top 250 shares from global developed markets (North America, Europe and Asia) which have been screened according to sustainability criteria’s set by EIRIS. The selection model filters the shares according to a liquidity threshold of EUR 50 million 6-month ADV and includes subsequently the top ranked shares based on free-float adjusted market capitalization.

  • Remove all securities with a 6-month ADV (as sourced from FactSet) below EUR 50 million.
  • Remove any security primary listed in Hong Kong and which derives more than 75% of its revenues outside the 24 countries mentioned above.
  • For each company keep only the most liquid share line and most liquid listing.
  • The renowned sustainability research firm Vigeo Eiris (Ethical Investment Research Information Service, www.vigeo-eiris.com), acquired by Moody’s in April 2019, applies on top of this process an ESG screening based on the ten principles of the UN Global Compact as well as specific exclusions related to controversial sectors.
