The S&P Europe 350 ESG Index is a pan-European index covering developed markets across over 15 different countries. The index is constructed from the constituents of the S&P Europe 350 index with a set of filters that governs the eligibility based on the companies’ adherence to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standards.
As of each index rebalancing reference date, the constituents of the S&P Europe 350 index are filtered for materially participating in certain industries (e.g., tobacco, controversial weapons, thermal coal revenue > 5%) and for possessing a low score in United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). Further, companies with an S&P DJI ESG Score that falls within the lowest 25% of ESG scores from each GICS Industry Group are also excluded.
