Vigeo and Euronext will launch a new ESG Index on 22 June 2015: Euronext-Vigeo EM 70. This index distinguishes 70 companies from a universe of 900 listed companies in developing countries which have the highest performances in corporate responsibility based on their ratings by Vigeo.

Like the seven other indices in the Euronext-Vigeo range, the companies in the Euronext-Vigeo EM 70 index are those to which Vigeo has attributed the highest consolidated scores. These include top ratings for companies’ ability to master risks related to social responsibility and deploy strong commitments in support of universal public standards, particularly in the field of human rights, decent employment practices, environmental protection, corporate governance, business ethics and contributions to social economic development in areas where they operate.

The Index components are reviewed and updated twice a year, in June and in December.
