FTSE Russell - Green Revenues Data
- Environmental data
- Indices/Exchange data
What data do you provide?
FTSE Russell has been an innovator in sustainable investment indexes since the launch in 2001 of the FTSE4Good Index Series - one of the longest running global ESG index series. FTSE Russell maintains two core sustainable investment data models: the ESG Ratings and data model assesses listed companies on their operational ESG risks and performance, while the Green Revenues data model classifies and measures company revenue exposure to products that deliver environmental solutions. By splitting our data model into these two dimensions users can determine more specifically whether to target ESG issues related to (operational) risk or (product) opportunities.
Where and how do you source your data?
FTSE Russell's Green Revenues data relies upon publicly disclosed information. Our primary sources of data are reports and other disclosures from companies. However, we will also use data from other sources such as governments and NGOs etc. All companies are then analyzed and classified using the FTSE Green Revenues Classification System (GRCS).
A Green Revenues Factor is calculated for each company between zero and 100% of revenues. This unique factor represents the total of green revenues generated by the company from any of the 60 subsectors in any single fiscal year as a ratio of the company’s overall revenues. Factors can be mapped over time; calculated across any of the 60 green subsectors or 8 broad green sectors; and aggregated by company size, traditional industrial classifications, country, region or globally.
The Green Revenues data model is overseen by an independent external committee comprising experts from the investment community, business, NGOs, unions and academia. Companies are researched and updated annually.
Who are the data users?
FTSE Russell’s Green Revenues data is used by asset managers, asset owners, investment consultants, and academic institutions.
