The FTSE ESG Low Carbon Emissions Target Exposure Indexes target a reduction in index level carbon emissions and significant improvement in the aggregate ESG Rating. The indexes are constructed using FTSE Russell’s Target Exposure methodology. The eligible securities of each FTSE ESG Low Carbon Emissions Select Index are the constituents of an underlying FTSE Target Exposure Index Universe. Operational Carbon Emissions are converted to a Z-Score and subsequently to an E-Score as detailed in the FTSE Target Exposure Index Series Ground Rules.
The FTSE ESG Index Series is designed to help investors align investment and ESG objectives into a broad benchmark, whilst maintaining industry neutrality. Company weights within each index are “tilted” using FTSE Russell’s ESG Ratings. Subsequently, industry neutral re-weighting is applied so that the
industry weights in each index match the underlying index universe. As a result, the FTSE ESG Indexes have risk/return characteristics similar to the underlying universe with the added benefit of improved ESG metrics.
