Bloomberg Barclays MSCI ESG Indices

Published in Thematic Indices

Bloomberg, a global leader in fixed income indexing, and MSCI, the world’s largest provider of ESG (environmental, social, and governance) equity indexes and research, have collaborated on the development of a family of rules-based benchmark indexes that incorporate measures of ESG risk and exposures.

  • The Bloomberg Barclays MSCI ESG Fixed Income Indexes includes a range of investment grade aggregate and corporate index benchmarks addressing the evolving needs of institutional investors, who increasingly aim to incorporate ESG considerations into their strategic asset allocation.
  • The Bloomberg Barclays MSCI Green Bond Index was voted best index for the third consecutive year. The index vets issues that fail to meet its green criteria, or do not uphold their green promise. Self-labelled green bonds are evaluated by MSCI’s ESG researchers against an independent methodology, verifying that the use of proceeds fall within one of seven categories: alternative energy, energy efficiency, pollution prevention & control, sustainable water, climate adaptation, green building and others.
