The FTSE ESG Ratings covers a large global universe of securities in the FTSE All-World Developed Index based on a transparent and consistent methodology that measures risk and performance across a variety of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) areas. A risk relative scoring method is used, where a company’s exposure to each theme influences indicator applicability and weighting rather than taking a generic or sector only approach.
The FTSE ESG Ratings offer an objective and flexible service for asset owners, asset managers and consultants to integrate ESG considerations into investments and stewardship approaches. The Ratings can be used in a variety of ways, building a basis for active portfolio management, company engagement, customized indices, ESG risk analysis or research and analysis.
