Sustainability Index and Rating
As ESG investment has evolved from a niche practice to an investment theme that attracts public participation, mainstream index providers have launched ESG indices and derivatives investment products, which are often based on ESG scores and ratings. An increasing number of listed companies have thus begun to integrate sustainability into their daily management process so as to effectively respond to expectations of key stakeholders such as investors while promoting long-term development. ESG indices and rating products could serve as a valuable reference for companies to identify materiality issues, risks and opportunities, to improve ESG management and performance, and thereby to enhance overall sustainability competitiveness.
CECEPEC empowers companies to narrow the gap with ESG indices constituent companies for inclusion in Dow Jones Sustainability Series Index (DJSI), Hang Seng Corporate Sustainability Index/HSI ESG Index and the MSCI ESG series index. Through improvement of critical information disclosure in sustainability reporting and strengthening the evaluation and demonstration of relevant KPIs, CECEPEC assists companies to become constituents of ESG indices and preferred choices for responsible investors.
