All events happening after that date will not lead to a replacement of the selected company that possibly needs to be removed from the final selection.

Review CAC 40 ESG®

The CAC 40 ESG® is reviewed quarterly (March, June, September, December). The full annual review is in September. The March, June, September and December reviews serve to facilitate inclusion of recently listed companies and to replace removed constituents.

Next CAC Steering Committee meeting: 9 December 2021.

Stéphane Boujnah, CEO and Chairman of the Managing Board of Euronext said: "Six months after the launch of the CAC 40 ESG® index, we are releasing the first annual review which demonstrates the strong progress made by most of the companies through their ESG scoring provided by Vigeo Eris. This positive momentum is the outcome of the increasing commitment of the largest  French companies in their ESG practices, in the context of growing ESG demands from investors. The ESG version of Euronext’s benchmark CAC 40 index is a very important step to facilitate and accelerate the transition to a sustainable economy. It will be reviewed every quarter to reflect the ongoing progress made by many companies engaged in significant ESG transition projects. This index allows investors to finance high-impact projects and companies, in line with the UN Global Compact Principles and the SRI label for sustainable and responsible investment, which is at the center of Euronext’s strategy.”

Sabine Lochmann, CEO & President of V.E and Global Head of Moody’s ESG Measures, commented: "We at Moody’s are proud to power the Euronext CAC 40 ESG® index with V.E’s high-quality ESG data, and this first annual review marks an important milestone. Our latest evaluation of companies’ ESG performance shows a broadly positive trend, driven by increased transparency and the growing maturity of ESG integration into corporate processes and management. This speaks to the importance of such indices in helping to catalyse the global shift to a sustainable and responsible financial system.”
