ICE Data Services has a range of ESG data and tools to help create transparency, uncover opportunities and manage risk.
We started investing in environmental markets in 2003 through a partnership with the Climate Exchange, which we fully acquired in 2010. Now, with over a decade of investment, ICE is recognized as a global leader in emissions and renewable energy markets.
ICE has partnered with MSCI to launch the first suite of futures referencing MSCI ESG indices. The MSCI ESG Leaders indices are designed for institutional investors seeking exposure to companies with a strong sustainability profile and with relatively low tracking error to the underlying equity market.
We are working with others in the commodity markets community to help increase sustainability including through the ICMA Sustainable Finance Committee Working Group Member, our membership in the Global Coffee Platform and as members of a World Federation of Exchanges working group that is looking into the development of sustainability standards for commodity markets and the United Nations Sustainable Stock Exchanges initiative derivatives network.
