About ET Index Research
ET Index Research helps investors cut carbon and beat the market. We help clients to systematically incorporate carbon and climate risk considerations into their stock selection and portfolio construction processes.
At ET Index Research, we have developed a comprehensive analytical framework for assessing relative and absolute risks. This allows investors to better recognise and manage the relationship between a company’s environmental and financial performance.
Our unique and publicly available carbon intensity ranking of the largest global companies allows investors the opportunity to engage and send a strong signal to companies to lower their emissions and disclose complete data.
These carbon rankings form the basis of our data, portfolio analytics and low carbon indexes. This offering is designed to improve risk-adjusted returns for investors as the world decarbonises.
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.
