The national ESG blue-chip index dedicated to the Dutch market

Serving as the new Dutch ESG index reference

The AEX® ESG Index is designed to identify the 25 companies in The Netherlands which manage their ESG risk well, by combining economic performance with Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations.  

This index is also built with a local focus in mind with a dutch footprint and global reach and is the first ESG-related index within the AEX family.

The methodology with globally recognised standards was created for the dutch market to serve as the new national ESG reference.

AEX ESG index objective

The AEX ESG Index aims to help investors identify dutch companies which are actively contributing to a more sustainable future through an index combining economic performance with Environmental, Social and Governance considerations. The methodology includes activity exclusions as well as filters based on the UNGC Assessment.

This index was developed in collaboration with leading market players in the Netherlands, resulting in the creation of a methodology with globally recognised standards.

AEX ESG is aligned with Global Standards Principles:

  • United Nations Global Compact principles (UNGC),
  • Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises (OECD),
  • ILO Conventions.

AEX ESG offers opportunities for the creation of a large range of investment vehicles such as ETFs, funds and structured products.
