FTSE ESG Index Series

The FTSE ESG Index Series is designed to help investors align investment and ESG objectives into a broad benchmark, whilst maintaining industry neutrality.

Company weights within each index are “tilted” using FTSE Russell’s ESG Ratings. Subsequently, industry neutral re-weighting is applied so that the industry weights in each index match the underlying index universe.

As a result, the FTSE ESG Indexes have risk/return characteristics similar to the underlying universe with the added benefit of improved ESG metrics.
