        STOXX

 

STOXX Limited

Sustainalytics has established a partnership with STOXX Limited, the market-moving provider of innovative, substantial and global index concepts. In April 2011, STOXX introduced the STOXX Global ESG Leaders Index family, an innovative series of ESG (environmental, social, governance) indices which is based on sustainability data provided by Sustainalytics. The new index family will set standards in terms of full transparency and comprehensiveness in the ESG indexing space. The key innovation in the STOXX Global ESG Leaders Index family is the fact that all ratings for the E, S, and G categories, as well as the methodology used to construct them, is made public on STOXX’s website, as well as on a newly launched webportal hosted by and integrated in Deutsche Boerse’s website for sustainable investments. Also, to ensure the quality of the index and the integrity of the underlying index methodology, an independent advisory committee has been established to give advice on the general ESG methodology underlying the indices.
