The objective of the DAX® ESG Target Index is to reflect the risk return characteristics of the DAX Index while maximizing its ESG score and at the same time reducing its carbon intensity by at least 30%. The predicted tracking error is constrained with respect to its parent index. The index includes ESG exclusion filters for Global Standards Screening, controversy ratings, controversial weapons, thermal coal, tobacco, nuclear power, military contracting, small arms and oil sands. DAX components identified for exclusion based on the exclusion filters are replaced by eligible HDAX components at each index review until the maximum number of 40 components is reached.
Index Guides, Benchmark statement, and other reports are available under the "Data & Methodology" tab.
