DAX ESG Screened

Index Description

The objective of the DAX ESG Screened index is to reflect the performance of the DAX index, Germany’s national benchmark, while using ESG exclusion filters to remove companies that fail to meet norms-based screening, controversial weapons screening, minimum ESG ratings and a series of business activity screenings. Removed companies are not replaced, therefore the DAX ESG Screened index will typically have fewer holdings than the parent DAX index.

Key facts

  • The index consists of securities from the DAX index screened for ESG criteria.
  • Screening is provided by award winning ESG data provider ISS ESG.
  • The index applies a transparent free-float market capitalization weighting scheme, similar to the parent index.
  • Diversification is achieved by incorporating a capping factor of 10% at component level, which ensures that no component can dominate the index.

Performance and annual returns


The DAX ESG Screened index composition is derived from its parent index, the DAX index.
STOXX will exclude companies that ISS ESG considers to be non-compliant based on UN Global Compact principles, are involved in controversial weapons, are tobacco producers or distributors and that either derive revenues from thermal coal mining, oil sands, civilian firearms, military equipment, or, have power generation capacity that utilizes nuclear power or thermal coal.
The index weighting is based on the free-float market capitalization, whereby the maximum weighting per share is capped at 10 percent. Removed companies are not replaced.
