Subscribe to our newsletter

New climate indices are to be launched based on the TOPIX 500, offering investors a net-zero benchmark for companies listed on Japan’s stock market. Compiled by London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) and Japan Exchange Group (JPX), the FTSE/JPX Net Zero Index Series will be based on the European Union’s Climate Transition Benchmark and will be aligned to meeting net-zero targets by 2050. They will also integrate Transition Pathway Initiative (TPI) Management Quality scores, which indicates how far a company has built climate-change policies into its operations. The indices, which will go live early next year, can be used for passive or active investment strategies and will also be available for research use, the LSEG said.
