Euronext Biodiversity Enablers World Index


The Euronext Biodiversity World Index to highlight companies that outperform in the field of biodiversity.

Why invest in biodiversity?

The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) defines biodiversity as “the variability among all sources including, inter alia, terrestrial, marine and other aquatic ecosystems and the ecological complexes of which they are part”. This includes diversity within species, between species, and of ecosystems.

Biodiversity is essential to sustaining humanity and all life on earth. Nature plays a critical role: it covers the processes that make up our ecosystems and gives us clean water, air, food and medicines. The current acceleration of global biodiversity loss is one of the most significant threats to society (OECD, 2019).

Across financial markets, conversations around Biodiversity risk remain high on the agenda, driven also by EU regulations and local regulations that require disclosures on Biodiversity. Financial regulators require that financial institutions assess nature-based financial risks and their impacts on nature.  

Euronext Biodiversity World Index Key principles

Best-in-class companies are selected based on their Biodiversity Avoided Impact score, which aims to quantify how much each corporate’s products and services perform better than the market average.
The assessment is defined as the Biodiversity Footprint measured in km². MSA (Mean Species Abundance) that a company has avoided compared to the market average, using a sectorial approach.

The index methodology also excludes companies with revenues coming from the production of Plastics or Pesticides and of issuers with revenues coming from the production or the consumption of non-RSPO Palm Oil, as assessed by Iceberg Datalab, companies with Biodiversity scores of 5 or 6, as provided by Iceberg Datalab and companies with 3-months Average Daily Traded Value lower than 10 Million EUR.

The index leverages on biodiversity research and product involvement as assessed by Iceberg Data Lab.
