Which businesses will be assessed?

Forum ETHIBEL is constantly looking out for companies which may be eligible for ethical investments and, thus, to be included in the Investment Register. Companies are considered for the assessment when they contribute to a balanced and varied composition of the register, which allows fund administrators to put together a financially and technically sound portfolio.

The basis of our assessment is actually the Vigeo Eiris assessment universe, based on the Russell Global Developed Index, complemented with ‘medium-sized’, ‘small’ or ‘micro’ shares and sometimes with unlisted equity.

Moreover, with regard to the Ethibel EXCELLENCE label we have the contractual obligation to include 25% of the market capitalisation of the European sectors in the Investment Register (excluding the ‘Aerospace & Defence’ and ‘Tobacco’ industries).
