The STOXX Global Sharing Economy Index is comprised of companies that stand to benefit from the ‘sharing economy’ trend. The sharing economy is an economic model based on acquiring, providing or sharing access to goods and services via community-based platforms, leading to extensive and productive use of formerly underutilized resources. The index includes ‘drivers’, i.e. companies that have a significant reciprocal relationship with the sharing economy megatrend, benefiting from it while also contributing to its growth, as well as ‘facilitators’, i.e. companies that have played a significant role in the establishment of the sharing economy model and make it more viable and convenient.
Revere (RBICS) data allow a detailed breakdown of the revenue sources of the eligible companies, helping this index to select companies with substantial exposure to the sharing economy trend.
Furthermore, the index excludes companies that Sustainalytics considers to be in breach of UN Global Compact principles or to be involved with controversial weapons.
Index Guides, Benchmark statement, and other reports are available under the Data tab.
