Methodology

New component stocks are those awarded the highest overall scores by Vigeo. These include top ratings for companies' ability to master risks related to social responsibility and deploy strong commitments in support of sustainable development. Vigeo's assessment model rates each company on nearly 330 indicators. No sectors are excluded per se.  

However following a decision by Vigeo's methodology team, companies that that are the subject of controversyon critical issues involving social responsibility and that do not supply comprehensive public information on corrective measures taken or discussions they may have entered into with stakeholders regarding such controversies, are excluded.

Companies’ weighting in the index, calculated by Euronext, is correlated with the rating assigned by Vigeo. This represents an alternative approach to traditional methods based on float. It allows for positive discrimination in favour of those listed companies—most of which operate internationally—that are the most actively engaged in promoting compliance with universal public standards, particularly in the field of human rights, decent employment practices, environmental protection, governance, business ethics and contributions to economic development and social progress in relevant areas.
