Index Solutions

Sustainability indices

Our range of flexible index solutions helps clients meet their sustainable and responsible investing goals

When it comes to sustainable investing, one size does not fit all; therefore our index toolbox contains a whole range of categories, each one with its own level of sustainability commitments and goals. At the core of our index offering lies our open architecture approach. This allows us to integrate best-in-class sustainability data from leading data providers into the index construction process.

ESG indices

STOXX and DAX ESG indices help investors incorporate ESG (environmental, social, and governance) criteria into their portfolios. This can be done by using exclusion strategies as well as enhancement strategies.


Climate indices

Our Climate indices are designed to facilitate the shift towards a low-carbon economy and align investments with the Paris Climate Agreement, EU Climate Benchmarks as well as other carbon reduction goals.


Open Architecture
We offer access to curated databases that allow for cutting-edge index creation. This open architecture approach enables us to select and integrate the best-in-class third-party data from leading providers including Sustainalytics, ISS ESG, SDI AOP, and CDP.
