FTSE4Good Index Series

The FTSE4Good Index Series has been designed to objectively measure the performance of companies that meet globally recognised corporate responsibility standards. Transparent management and criteria make FTSE4Good a valuable tool for consultants, asset owners, fund managers, investment banks, stock exchanges and brokers when assessing or creating responsible investment products.

FTSE4Good can be used in four main ways:

Investment

As a basis for creating index-tracking investments, financial instruments or fund products focusing on responsible investment

Research

To identify environmentally and socially responsible companies

Reference

As as reference by which companies with a transparent and evolving global corporate responsibility standard can assess their progress and achievement

Benchmarking

As a benchmark index to track the performance of responsible investment portfolios
