About ET Index Research
ET Index Research helps investors and corporates identify, understand and manage carbon and climate-related risks.
ET Index Research provides investors with corporate carbon emissions data, portfolio carbon analytics in-line with FSB Task Force Recommendations, as well as low carbon and fossil free low carbon indexes.
These indexes can be used as a benchmark for fund managers who want an objective comparison for their performance. They can also form the basis of investment strategies or products (like Exchange Traded Funds) that diversify investment across the market while reducing exposure to carbon.
The ET Low Carbon Index Series is underpinned by the public and transparent ET Carbon Rankings – in combination, this is designed to reduce carbon exposure for investors and act as an engagement tool to encourage constituent companies to lower emissions. See the full suite of ET Low Carbon and ET Fossil Free Low Carbon index factsheets here.
ET Index Research was spun out from the not-for-profit Environmental Investment Organisation (EIO) in 2014 with funding from the Climate-KIC, the European Union’s main climate innovation initiative. The company was initially nurtured at the Imperial College Innovations Incubator, working with Imperial College’s Risk Management Laboratory to validate its models and methodologies. ET Index Research has since moved into offices in Canary Wharf, joining the Level39 community.
In March 2017, the company was accepted as a member of the Social Stock Exchange (SSX), which is the world’s first regulated exchange dedicated to businesses and investors seeking to achieve a positive social and environmental impact through their activities.
