A wide range of biodiversity index solutions

We offer a high-level range of indices focusing on biodiversity. Euronext suite of Biodiversity Indices aims to identify companies that are managing well their material biodiversity impacts from different perspectives, either by excluding the worst performers or by selecting the best performers.

Why invest in biodiversity?

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

Human-driven biodiversity loss is one of today’s main challenges: financial institutions and companies are encouraged to monitor and disclose their risks and negative impacts on biodiversity and the demand for index solutions that consider the biodiversity impact of companies is still growing. Financial institutions have an important role to play in tackling the preservation of biodiversity. 

Euronext, as a leading pan-European index provider, is strongly committed to early action.
