ESGG Fund Description

ESGG follows a principles-based global index composed of companies that exhibit environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) characteristics.

ESGG Factset Analytics Insight

ESGG follows an index designed to provide global exposure to 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. The index is reconstituted on a quarterly basis. Prior to June 1, 2021, the fund was named FlexShares STOXX Global ESG Impact Index Fund and tracked the STOXX Global ESG Impact Index.
