FTSE ECPI Italia SRI Index Series

Sustainable and Responsible Investment (SRI) strategies are gaining strength and market share globally as the risks and opportunities related to the impact companies have on the environment and society become increasingly apparent. Therefore, assessing the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance of a business are of vital importance to investors. How well a company addresses its ESG issues – from treatment of staff, suppliers or shareholders to the environmental impact or governance standards – can be indicators of quality and management and how well placed it is to deliver long-term shareholder value.

  • Environmental Strategy and Policy
  • Environmental Management
  • Products
  • Production Process
  • Community Relations
  • Employees and Human Capital
  • Markets
  • Corporate Governance & Shareholders
