  • The index features standardized negative screens for companies that are involved in controversial activities - controversial weapons, military contracting, nuclear power, thermal coal, tobacco - or fail the standardized ESG screens within the Global Standard Screening.
  • The methodology considers environmental, social and governance (ESG) scores in the stock selection.
