The STOXX Benchmark ESG-X Indices are based on a selection of STOXX Benchmark Indices and apply standardized ESG exclusion screens. The screens are based on the responsible policies of leading asset owners and aim to reduce reputational and idiosyncratic risks.
STOXX excludes companies that Sustainalytics considers to be non-compliant based on Sustainalytics Global Standards Screening assessment, that are involved in controversial weapons, are tobacco producers, or that either derive revenues from thermal coal extraction or exploration or have power generation capacity that utilizes thermal coal.
STOXX Benchmark ESG-X Indices are suitable as underlying indices for mandates, passive funds, ETFs, structured products and listed derivatives, with the ambition to increase liquidity and lower the cost of trading.
In February 2020, the STOXX® USA 500 ESG-X Index became the underlying for the first listed derivative covering the US market which includes a screening for thermal coal mining and coal-fired power plants. The future is listed on Eurex.
