About ET Index Research
ET Index Research is an independent research body promoting carbon transparency and investment solutions designed to address climate change. The Engaged Tracking (ET) Carbon Rankings, which are designed to encourage an ever greater standard of transparency and advantage carbon efficient companies, are compiled from publicly available emissions data taken from company sustainability reports, annual reports and websites. ET Index Research uses the Rankings data to build the ET Low Carbon and Fossil Free Index Series as the basis for index-linked investment strategies. The objective of the ET Low Carbon and Fossil Free Index Series is to provide institutional investors with tools to maximise returns whilst reducing their exposure to carbon risk, by reallocating capital to more carbon-efficient companies. Disclosing a full carbon footprint means disclosing Greenhouse Gas Protocol defined Scope 1 and 2 (direct and electricity) emissions, as well as Scope 3 (value chain) emissions. Scope 3 emissions include categories such as transportation and distribution, use of sold products and investments made by the company.
The Rankings and the transparent methodology behind them can be viewed online at www.etindex.com
