The STOXX Climate Impact Ex UN Global Compact Principles Controversial Weapons & Tobacco indices will include companies with CDP Performance Bands A to B- (pre-2016 Performance Band A to B). Band A and A- includes companies that are seen as leading companies in terms of climate change: these companies are disclosing particular “actions” which mark them as leaders, as well as high scores across all other levels of the CDP Scoring matrix. Scoring requires detailed company-specific explanations. Band B & B- includes companies that “manage” climate change: companies seek evidence of climate actions implemented and requires company-specific understanding of climate change related issues. Companies who are in contravention of UN Global Compact Principles or are involved in Controversial Weapons activities, as identified by Sustainalytics, are excluded. Additionally, the Coal sector (ICB Code 1771) and the Tobacco sector (ICB Code 3785) is excluded.
In February 2019, the STOXX® Europe Climate Impact Index became the underlying for one of Europe’s first ESG futures contracts, listed on Eurex.
