EDPR included in FTSE4Good Index
EDPR has been included in the FTSE4Good index following the benchmark’s September 2011 review. The FTSE4Good is a financial index that aggregates top performing companies for sustainability and corporate social responsibility. Since its creation in 2001, the FTSE4Good Index Series has sought to help responsible investors identify and invest in companies that meet globally recognised corporate responsibility standards, to provide asset managers with a responsible investment benchmark and a tool for responsible investment products. It also aims to foster the development of responsible business practices around the world.
To qualify for inclusion in the FTSE4Good Index Series, companies must be in the FTSE All World Developed Index. Eligible companies must meet criteria requirements in five areas: working towards environmental sustainability, upholding and supporting universal human rights, ensuring good supply chain labour standards, countering bribery, and mitigating and adapting to climate change.
