The iSTOXX PPF Responsible SDG Emerging Markets Index is designed to target increased exposure to securities in Emerging Markets which positively contribute to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals 3 (Good Health and Well-Being), 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy), 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production) and 13 (Climate Action). The index excludes companies which are obstructive to these goals and targets a carbon intensity reduction of 30% vs its benchmark. The weighting of constituent securities is determined through an optimization process that is designed to improve targeted SDG exposures while limiting benchmark deviation.
Index Guides, Benchmark statement, and other reports are available under the Data tab.
