Principles

The FTSE Environmental Opportunities Index Series measures the performance of global companies that have significant involvement in environmental business activities, including renewable & alternative energy, energy efficiency, water technology and waste & pollution control.
Forming part of the overall FTSE Environmental Markets Index Series, the FTSE Environmental Opportunities Index Series requires companies to have at least 20% of their business derived from environmental markets and technologies (as opposed to at least 50% for the FTSE Environmental Technology Index Series).
The FTSE Environmental Markets Index Series has been developed in collaboration with Impax Asset Management and under the direction of the independent FTSE Environmental Technology Committee, further enhancing FTSE’s suite of Responsible Investment indices and providing investors with a robust set of responsible investment tools.

The two headline indices within the FTSE Environmental Opportunities Index Series are:

FTSE Environmental Opportunities All-Share Index
The headline benchmark index, comprising all of the companies that have significant involvement in environmental business activities and meet the environmental opportunities eligibility requirements*

FTSE EO 100 Index
The headline tradable index, focusing on the top 100 largest companies by market capitalisation in the FTSE Environmental Opportunities All-Share Index.


This opportunity set is also captured via a range of regional indices which include:
- FTSE Environmental Opportunities Europe Index
- FTSE Environmental Opportunities USA Index
- FTSE Environmental Opportunities & Alternative Energy Index
