Methodology

The EURO iSTOXX ESG Weighted 50 Index selects 50 largest securities from the EURO STOXX Index that are not involved in fossil fuels.
STOXX will exclude companies that are not compliant based on the Sustainalytics Global Standards Screening assessment, have Severe Controversy Rating (Category 5) or are involved in Controversial Weapons. Companies that generate revenues from Conventional Oil & Gas, Unconventional Oil & Gas, Thermal Coal or with below 50 ESG scores are not eligible for selection.
Constituents of the EURO STOXX index that meet the aforementioned criteria are ranked in descending order of their free-float market capitalization. The index selects the largest 50 securities from this list, subject to ICB Industry constraints. These securities are then ranked in ascending order of their ESG scores and issued linearly increasing weights. Securities with higher ESG scores will have larger weights than those with lower ESG scores.
