SOLACTIVE ISS PRIME RATED ESG INDEX SERIES

The Solactive ISS Prime Rated ESG Index Series, tracks companies that achieve or exceed ambitious sector-specific performance requirements defined by the ISS ESG Corporate Rating. The index constituents, categorized as “Prime”* by ISS ESG, are defined by ISS based on the ESG risk exposure and impact of their respective business models and value chains (absolute best-in-class approach). In addition, only companies identified by ISS ESG as operating in accordance with market standards on ISS ESG screens are eligible for inclusion. Those standards are based on established norms such as the United Nations Global Compact and the absence of significant involvement in defined sectors.

The index series currently tracks large and midcap companies across five regional segments: Global, Developed Markets, Emerging Markets, U.S. and Europe.

The indices aim to cover current and future regulation on ESG investments and also include a focus on pertinent climate change issues.

*The ESG Corporate Rating assesses companies’ sustainability performance on an absolute best-in-class basis. An analyst opinion complements each rating to provide a qualitative commentary of key rating results across the three dimensions of sustainability opportunities, sustainability risks and governance. If a company meets the minimum standards in successfully managing sustainability-related risks and opportunities, it is awarded with the Prime status.

SIX SWEDEN ESG SELECTION INDEX

In cooperation with SIX, ISS ESG excludes shares that fails to meet the requirement for sustainable and responsible investment. Companies involved in the verified violation of international standards regarding the environment, human rights, labour relations, anti-corruption legislation or the involvement in controversial weapons as well as involvement in business from alcohol, gambling, tobacco, pornography, military equipment, fossil fuels and oil sands are excluded.

In addition, ISS ESG examines the remaining companies in the index selection and defines eligibility from an Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) perspective. The index will only consist of companies that have passed an in-depth ESG analysis assessing companies against peers in its industry using the ISS Corporate Ratings methodology. The 70 highest ESG rated shares are selected to the index. At minimum, 50% of the subsequently selected companies, based on the total market cap of the index, must also be considered to be leaders in sustainability living up to standards of strong ESG practices.

This index is pre-evaluated by Nordic Ecolabelling and can be used by a Nordic Swan Ecolabelled investment fund.
