FTSE4Good Index

The FTSE4Good Index is a series of ethical investment stock market indices launched in 2001 by the FTSE Group.[1] A number of stock market indices are available, for example covering UK shares, US shares, European markets, and Japan, with inclusion based on a range of corporate social responsibility criteria. Research for the indices is supported by the Ethical Investment Research Services (EIRIS).[2]

Academic research suggests that inclusion in or exclusion from the index does not significantly affect firm behaviour,[3] and that investors focusing on the indices do no worse on average than those who invest without regard to them.[4]
