How companies qualify for ESG index status

Companies with a strong environmental commitment – be it climate change policies, greenhouse gas emission goals or carbon footprint – could find themselves featured on this index.

The social component of ESG involves people-related elements, such as company culture and issues that impact employees, customers, consumers, suppliers, the local community, and society at large.

Finally, a company with good corporate governance is judged as one with a strong board of directors who relate well to different stakeholders, run their business effectively, and align the management team's incentives with the company's success.
