Sustainability Index Services

Through indices such as those listed below, investors are able to benchmark the performance of their portfolios against a set of sustainability leaders. They can see where they may be falling behind or where they are outperforming. Sustainability indices also allow investors that integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into their decision process to easily identify companies for investment. Sustainalytics works with its index partners to create and maintain sustainability indices by developing index methodologies, providing data and research and helping connect clients with index providers.

Sustainalytics’ index experience dates back to 2000 and the launch of its own Jantzi Social Index (JSI). Sustainalytics provides services for both thematic and ESG leaders indexes as outlined below.
