Performance and annual returns

Methodology

The STOXX WTW Climate Transition Indices track the performance of liquid securities from a selection of STOXX Benchmark Indices.

Companies identified as non-compliant based on Sustainalytics Global Standard Screening (GSS) assessment or are involved in anti-personnel mines, biological and chemical weapons, cluster weapons, depleted uranium and white phosphorus weapons are not eligible for selection. In addition, companies with significant involvement in Thermal Coal and Oil Sands are also not eligible.

Eligible companies are weighted based on their free-float market capitalization adjusted by Climate Transition Value at Risk (CTVaR) metrics from Willis Towers Watson that measures a company's readiness for the global economic transition to a low carbon economy.
