The Green Economy Mark is underpinned by a robust methodology and data model.
The Mark identifies London-listed companies and funds on all segments of the Main Market and AIM that generate more than 50% of their total annual revenues from products and services that contribute to the global green economy.
The Green Economy Mark draws upon the FTSE Russell’s Green Revenues 2.0 Data Model which identifies companies providing green products and services which achieve set environmental objectives. Revenues are classified based on the Green Revenues Classification System.
The classification system captures environmental products and services across the whole equity value chain, covering 10 green sectors, 64 subsectors and 133 micro sectors. Each business activity is defined and evaluated against seven environmental themes relating to climate change mitigation and adaptation, water, resource use, pollution, and agricultural efficiency.
