Market participants are increasingly looking to manage carbon exposure in their investments, and reduce write-off or downward revaluation risks associated with stranded assets. Stranded assets are fossil fuels deposits, including oil, gas and coal, that must remain unburned or in the ground in order for the world to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
The FTSE ex Fossil Fuels Index Series is designed to represent the performance of companies in FTSE Russell and FTSE RAFI indexes after the exclusion of companies that have certain exposure to fossil fuels.
The FTSE All-World ex Coal Index Series is designed to represent the performance of companies in specific market segments of the FTSE All-World Index after the exclusion of companies that have certain exposure to coal mining or general mining.
