Methodology

The parent index is the STOXX® Europe 600 Index. Components are selected if they come from a Eurozone country, are not in contravention of UN Global Compact principles or involved in controversial weapons activities, as identified by Sustainalytics, and have environmental (E), social (S) and governance (G) scores equal to or exceeding 50, as determined by Sustainalytics.
All eligible companies are ranked in descending order based on their free-float market capitalization. The 100 companies with the highest free-float market capitalization are ranked again in descending order based on their E score. The 50 companies with the highest E scores are selected for the index.
The components are equal-weighted; and the index is reviewed quarterly.
The detailed methodology including the calculation formula can be found in our rulebooks: www.stoxx.com/rulebooks
