ESGFlexShares STOXX U.S. ESG Impact Index Fund
ESG Fund Description
The FlexShares STOXX US ESG Impact Index Fund follows a principles-based index composed of US-listed companies that exhibit environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) characteristics.
ESG Factset Analytics Insight
ESG follows an index designed to provide exposure to US-listed companies that exhibit several specific environmental, social, and corporate governance attributes. These factors include low emissions, percentage of independent board members, percentage of women board members, policies against child labor, and non-use of golden parachute agreements. Disqualifying characteristics include non-adherence to UN Global compact principles, involvement in controversial weapons, or coal mining. All qualifying constituents are weighted based on an aggregated “ESG score” derived from the factors mentioned above. For such exposure, ESG charges a reasonable fee.
