Ethibel Sustainability Indices
Forum ETHIBEL's selections are largely based on research, carried out by the European rating agency Vigeo, which is responsible for data collecting and processing, performance analysis and industry benchmarking.
The composition of the indices is reviewed twice a year. The general aim of the periodical review of the index is to ensure that the selection and weighting of the constituents continues to reflect the underlying market or market segment it represents.
Detailed methodologies are available in the ESI rulebook published on the websites of Forum ETHIBEL and Vigeo.
Ethibel Pioneer & Excellence Investment Register
In composing the Ethibel Pioneer and Excellence Investment Registers Forum ETHIBEL selects companies playing a pioneering or leading role in their sector in terms of sustainability. The selection is based on a best-in-class approach combined with exclusionary criteria. Detailed methodologies are available on the Forum ETHIBEL website.
