Today, S&P DJI continues to innovate with more than 100 ESG indices to accommodate diverse investment objectives for almost every type of investor, ranging from best-in-class approaches like the DJSI to broad market benchmarks like the S&P 500® ESG Index, along with other regional benchmarks that seek to replicate the risk/return profile of the underlying index. S&P DJI also creates tools for an array of climate investing needs, including sophisticated approaches in line with the recommendations of the TCFD, as well as various thematic ESG benchmarking and data solutions.
