FTSE Environmental Markets Index Series

FTSE Group has partnered with Impax Asset Management to create the FTSE Environmental Markets Index Series, which is broken down into two sub-series: the FTSE Environmental Technology Index Series and the FTSE Environmental Opportunities Index Series; both of which are based on the FTSE Environmental Markets Classification System (EMCS). Details of the EMCS are provided in Index Resources below. The family has been developed under the direction of the independent FTSE Environmental Advisory Committees, which is composed of clean technology analysts, scientists and experts drawn from asset owners/pension funds and market participants.

The family includes:

FTSE Environmental Technology Index Series

Indexes within this series measure the performance of companies globally whose core business is in the development and deployment of environmental technologies, including renewable and alternative energy, energy efficiency, water technology and waste and pollution control. Companies are required to have at least 50% of their business derived from environmental markets and technologies in order to be eligible for the FTSE Environmental Technology Index Series.

FTSE Environmental Opportunities Index Series

Indexes within this series measure the performance of global companies that have significant involvement in environmental business activities, including renewable and alternative energy, energy efficiency, water technology and waste and pollution control. Companies are required to have at least 20% of their business derived from environmental markets and technologies in order to be eligible for the FTSE Environmental Opportunities Index Series.

The indexes are suitable for benchmarking purposes and can be used as tools in the creation of financial products, such as institutional and retail funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs) and derivatives.
