About FTSE4Good Index Series

Launched in 2001, the FTSE4Good Index Series is the first index series to measure the performance of companies that meet globally recognized corporate responsibility standards. It aims to identify and recognize companies demonstrating strong Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices. Transparent management and clearly-defined ESG criteria make FTSE4Good indexes suitable tools to be used by investment advisers, asset owners, fund managers, investment banks, stock exchanges and brokers when creating or assessing sustainable investment products. For the inclusion in the FTSE4Good Index Series, companies are required to implement corporate responsibility measures in a number of areas, including working towards environmental sustainability, mitigating and adapting to climate change, countering bribery and corruption, up-holding and supporting universal human rights, labor rights and ensuring good supply chain labor standards, and comply with strict global guidelines.
