Global warming poses unprecedented risks to society and investors. Fortunately, climate indices help make it possible to invest in a more resilient future while maintaining broad-benchmark exposure. Leveraging powerful data from S&P Global Trucost to address different carbon reduction objectives, many of these indices align with recommendations of the Task Force for Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and climate benchmark standards proposed by the EU Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance.
